About sharpening your cabinet scraper
The key to a great cabinet scraper is in the burnishing, or the sharpening of the tool. A common method to achieve this is to first file the top of the cabinet scraper for a flat top edge, generally with a metal file or stone, then use a burnisher tool to create a nice barely-visible hook burr along the edges of the cabinet scraper. This is will provide you with a great & superior shaving tool.
