new hand-made rasps arrived at my doorstep this week! I've been wanting to upgrade from my home Depot $5 special for ages, as it leaves considerable chatter marks 80% of the time I use it. word from fellow builders is that the Auriou leaves a surface that only requires minimal sanding clean-up ... and the Gramercy is reputed to be better for harder woods like Walnut and Ash

- (top) Auriou (France) cabinet maker's 250mm x 32mm x 5.5mm #9 rasp
- (bottom) Gramercy (Pakistan) cabinet maker's 10"x25tpi rasp

I'll post my thoughts on these once I've had a little time to work with them on multiple woods

all the best,

R
