Use a wood grater
Too often confused with the plane, the wood grater is a metal tool resembling a big file. It is generally used to form rounds.
Tools and materials needed:
A wood rasp
A wire brush
Step 1: preparation of the piece of wood
Start by blocking the workpiece firmly in a vise.
Then draw your rounded pencil.
Step 2: Getting to grips with the tool
Grab the handle in one hand and put your grater on the wood.
With the other hand, you will press on the other end of the blade to keep it on the same plane
Step 3: cutting the wood
Push the blade forward, changing its tilt little by little to get the desired shape.
If during sawing you notice that sawdust remains stuck in the blade, do not hesitate to remedy it by passing a metallic brush stroke.
To obtain a hollow and curved shape, choose a rounded rasp and work on two sides so that the wood does not deteriorate by bursting.
