Erratic Grain


they make a scraper for custom wood work that comes in different sapes. it is a thin strong oiece of steel that you take the top edge and grind straight down so that you create a slight burr at 90 degrees to rhe metal. you then lightly file the burr a little more down from the 90. I believe they are called a french scraper and will shave the surface to a smooth glassy finish. they can get quite hot from the friction so tape the finger tips

I think the teacher would like you to do your own homework.
