Dovetail chisels DIY post
skewed, fishtail and left, right dovetail versions – this is from the Dovetail chisel DIY blog
Ok I made it! dovetails in my tooltote project, but learned my tools were not the best for this job.
So this lead me to do some investigation on this subject, and I realized my pension was not a well match for a set of good dovetail chisels, so as we say in Denmark ‘need learns the naked woman to spin’, even I’m always dressed while in the work shop…
So over some time now I have been working on these dovetail chisels, made from some old chisels I bought in a toolbox a long time a go for nothing, and yesterday I finally finished them.
1. The finished chisels (pipe and grasebox for you guys).
3. Grinding (its my blood there).
5. The old chisels and their new handles.
6. The new shapes of the blades.
Here are the blog if you want to know more.
Now update with new sides on the fishtail chisel.
Hope it can be to some inspiration,
