So the homeowner wants to remove an old trash compactor and add access to the back of a sink on a counter that extends into the room. No problem, right? Only the original doors were made on a shaper and no router bits can be found that match the profile components close enough to create new cabinet door frames. Enter the handy scratch stock. I made a card scraper (at the grinder and with a hand file) from an old saw blade to match the door frame pieces. Inserted it into a dowel and added two fences (http://www.popularwoodworking.com/articleindex/jig-journal-sliding-head-scratch-stock). Then I duplicated the panel using my tenon jig at the tablesaw. Several hours of scraping (27 linear feet) later, and presto, new cabinet doors that match the original. And I learned a new trick to boot.
