Violin Scraper Caddy
A while ago I made a set of violin maker's scrapers from a dollar store saw blade. They have been sitting in the tray from a package of Fig Newtons on my work table. I occasionally use them as I need to clean up areas on the violins and cellos that I repair.A few days ago I decided to make a little caddy to hold them upright for easier access. Formerly I would dig through the tray looking for the one I wanted.I made it very simply with a hunk of scrap 3/4 pine. I used the table saw to make the kerfs in it about 1/2 inch deep. Then I simply wrapped it by glueing on a piece of thin 2/4 strip that I kept.I finished it with boiled linseed oil.
