Sacristy table

This table was built with unusually long legs to accommodate a tall altar cloth container underneath. The table is sturdily built with a pleasing undercut beveled overhang to maximize surface area. This table was challenging in that a dark stain was used along with an inlay that could not be stained. The water based finish is a high urethane semi-gloss and will provide protection for many years to come. Custom dimensions are available to fit specific needs.

Lee Valley Veritas cabinet scraper

Hey, never had one of these before. Wow, is it handy! This is the Lee Valley Veritas cabinet scraper. It is sharpened differently than a chisel or plane blade, but it’s really easy. Plus it has two burrs, once you go thru one, you have another ready to go.

Here’s a few pics and it being used on zebrawood for a morning bar top. Gets rid of any tearout very nicely and leaves the surface ready for a card scraper or sandpaper. I like it much better for flat surfaces because the bottom registers flat, as opposed to a card scraper. I actually like it better than my smoother because it’s fast.

It’s important to follow the instructions carefully, as they get you off to a great start in understand the sharpening process. Here’s a link to a great video on Fine Woodworking by Phillip C. Lowe about the use of cabinet scrapers, scraper planes, and hand scrapers.
