Product Overview

Cabinet makers rasps are used for general shaping work. They are relatively wide in proportion to their length to give you considerable cutting power and achieve a surprisingly smooth finish on your work.
The teeth on Auriou rasps are handed in order to take account of the natural position of your hands when pushing the rasp (the same way you often slightly skew a plane when pushing along a board). So, yes, we make left and right handed rasps. When you get your rasp you will soon discover the correct angle (about 30 degrees) to get the maximum efficiency from the teeth on the rasp (you can "hear" the correct angle).

As a general guide you should chose a rasp which is 3 to 4 times longer than the width of the piece you are shaping.
For example - when shaping guitar necks, you first need a 10" (250mm) or 12" (300mm) rasp before moving on to a smaller, finer rasp for more refined shaping.

Auriou rasps do not tear your edges so you can work to a line with the utmost confidence.

The coarsest grain for the cabinet rasp is the 12" (300m) Grain 4, which will remove a lot of material with great efficiency.
(G1 is the coarsest grain - G15 is finest grain).

For general work we suggest the 9" (225mm) Grain 10 cabinet rasp.

    Auriou cabinet rasp 10 and modelling rasp 14

    Posted by Reid Moule on 27th Jun 2022

    The difference between these rasps and a local store bought one is the difference between a Rolls Royce and a scooter. These are an absolute joy to use!

    Cabinet Maker’s rasp #10

    Posted by Christian on 8th Dec 2021

    Fantastic tool! I used it for much of the shaping work on a walking cane I made and it truly delivered. Never buying a cheap rasp again.

    I already have of your rasps, and this one filled in for a gap in my files (#1 - #15). They are excellent. I have other rasps from other company’s. Some handed down from my father. Non of the other files are as good as these . Thank you for your craf

    I hope to purchase more, and when it is time pass them on to my daughter. She has studied to be an architect and enjoys woodworking.

    Great quality

    Posted by Patrick de Ruiter on 30th Nov 2021

    Great quality rasp, that doesn't clog like machine-made rasps and gives a far nicer finish. they don't come cheap, but far outperform the machine-made stuff, worth every cent I paid for it though. Very happy with my purchase

    Cabinet makers Rasp No4

    Posted by Sina on 11th Nov 2021

    A great Rasp .Arguably the best I've ever used. I rank it above my Liogier sapphire as it doesn't clog up as much as the Liogier.

    Wonderful tool, excellent workmanship

    Posted by Martin Gamble-Salt on 25th Mar 2021

    I bought this due to a great review from Paul Sellers’ blog. I needed a smooth, precise tool for material removal on curved and recessed surfaces. I was not disappointed. Build quality is very high, and the cutting surface offers smooth, precise material removal with little to no visible furrows. The tool feels great in the hand. Materials used are first-rate. I am very happy to support this small, traditional business, especially when you can get such a high-level tool at this price pint.

    This is an incredible tool!

    Posted by Thomas Hearle on 6th Oct 2020

    Just like every other Auriou rasp that I have purchased, the 12 inch 6 grain cabinet maker's rasp is everything I expected it to be and more. These tools cut some of the hardest woods with very little effort and are an asset for every serious woodworker's tool chest.
