Corner Stripping

Posted by peaches20 (My Page) on

I'm working on a kitchen door that has wood inset with decorative edges. I'm down to the corners and sanding paint left here and there. What is the best method of getting those corners? I've tried scrappers and they can't get in the corners to well. I also tried the dremel and mouse and still haven't gotten to it. Any suggestions?

Sharpened putty knives and wood chisels use bevel down.

Here's what I use:

Here is a link that might be useful: detail scraper

RE: Corner Stripping

Dental pick set and a shavehook usually work. Ice picks, too. Avoid razors and x-acto knives b/c you can damage the wood too easily IMO. That detail scraper looks pretty handy, too. Shavehooks are just bigger versions of that.

RE: Corner Stripping

Thanks for all the help. The tool I was using is pretty close to the detail scraper. Since I don't have a dental pick set, I'll try the ice pick first.

Thanks again,
