I am working on 8 desks for a client and he wanted a slight bevel on the underside of the desk creating an aesthetically pleasing thin and modern profile. Because of the size of the desk, I felt it almost impossible to get the angle I wanted on the underside of the desk using power tools–a ton of set up which required actually building a tool to accomplish just this one job. This bevel took me 10 minutes to complete and about 2 of those minutes were spent hand scraping so the surface would be completely free of blemishes. The beauty of using a card scraper is that it necessitates no sanding. No sanding means no sawdust, no noise, no earplugs, no respirator mask–pure work. The reason “Hand Scraped” costs more is because its letting you know it was finished by hand not mass produced through a massive belt sander.
