This traditional tool uses a thin steel cutter to shape a profile using a scraping motion.This high-angle cut produces a smooth surface.In addition, a scratch stock can make details that are more intricate than those on router bits.
Finally, you can make your own cutters to match unique profiles or existing moldings.Building the scratch stock shown here is a good way to use a special piece of highly figured wood.And it only takes a few hours to make.
