How are cabinet scrapers used; are they pushed or pulled?
John Brock: I both push and pull cabinet scrapers. It depends on the grain runout and where I can best reach the workpiece. I think I have more control pulling, but I routinely do both.
Mark Hensley: I use them both ways. However, I get more power when I push.
Richard Jones: I use them both ways. It depends on which is most convenient, but I generally find it easier to push. I find it easier to flex the wide face of the scraper nearest me concave using my thumbs near the center and pulling the short edges towards me with my fingers.
