A Box Scraper Plane, also referred to as a Box Scraper, is a woodworking hand tool designed to scrape in awkward positions such as inside a box or a drawer.

The tool gives a super-smooth even finish leaving very little need for sanding the piece of work.

The box scraper plane is also well suited to scraping all manner of other items even including wooden flooring.

"Just stumbled across your website and an absolute treasure trove of information. I was recently given an old Stanley 110 block plane and wanted to know more about it. Your website told me everything I needed to know.

But there is so much more to read. I forsee me spending a lot of time just reading page after page. I can appreciate how much time this will have taken to put together.

I just wanted to let you know that your hard work is appreciated."
