Hand Forged Glue Scraper

Master Blacksmith Mark Schramm made this specialty glue scraper for a friend that makes wooden blanks for snowboards and skies.  He has a rack of specialized bar clamps to clamp the blanks of aspen together.  In the coarse of gluing the pipes get covered with glue, making alignment of the boards difficult, so he needed a solution.

My friend and his young son that he is teaching to turn made the handle and used a piece of copper pipe for the ferrule and the wood came from a pallet.  The blade is made to fit the curve of the pipes and makes quick work of the dried glue.

Nice work Mark.
