I needed to clean up some fuzzed grain in an inaccessible spot and to remove scratches in a narrow area. A cabinet scraper would have done the job if it weren’t so big. My solution was to break a utility knife blade in half. On one half I ground a radius on the cutting edge making it look like a rocker from a rocking chair; the other half I kept straight. I then burnished a hook on the edge of each. I can use the straight one where I won’t be digging in with the corners. I use the curved one to scrape a small area on a flat surface Both work great and I wonder I how I got along for so long without these additions to my arsenal of tools.
