Wow! You should immediately box them up and mail them to me to get the constant reminder of your mistake as far away from you as possible, then start on another set and try to get it right next time. :) Here’s a link to what a really nice set of chisels should look like. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/19035

Amazing work !!!
I’m rather new to woodworking, so please don’t be offended when I ask why “Ash” handles?

Wow, did you do the steel work also? I also have made tools out of o-1, as it is easy to work with (heat treat). Nice job, I can imagine they are very satisfying to sharpen and use.

Great looking set. I’ve been wanting to make my own chisels/tools for a while. Where did you get steel and how did you shape the round “necks”?

Hiram, you just had to ash (ooh I couldn’t resist). I don’t mean to steal Doug’s thunder, but I believe ash is straight grained and pretty stable. Also, not to bad to work. Welcome to LJ and to WW’ing. You addiction will become more noticable over time, but not to worry, it’s a natural phenomena.
