A tool every joiner should have.

Cabinet scrapers are one of the most economical and useful tools you can lay your hands on.

Used for getting a finished surface ready to polish, these can give a smoother finish than sandpaper.

The scraper can be used for removing old varnish and laquer a lot more effectively than sandpaper and does not clog.

The scraper will remove material much faster than sandpaper but will need have the burr maintained.

You will need a Burnisher to keep the edge: a Burnisher is a round piece of extremely hard steel, that will put a curl onto the edge of the scraper, it is this curled edge that allows the scraper to cut.

Learning to burr the scraper may take a few goes but is worth mastering, once mastered you will keep the scraper with you and probably wonder how you managed without it.
