Dovetail chisels DIY (new kids on the ‘blog’) post
or actually just an update on an old song…

Ok it’s not about music, just a vintage architect sharing his passion for wood and tools.

New kids on the block:

Ok bad humor, but I just remembered those guys, and what the heck if they can give new life to a band like take that then all is possible (or perhaps we can really see not all is possible)...

So back to the subject:
Last time it was all about the skewed, fishtail and left, right dovetail versions. So I was all up on the beat, but missed some basic tunes, simple tunes like marking and paring.
So I just updated my set:

1. All you need is love...
2. Updated Exacto, and a very thin fishtail for details – this means keyhole saw, cutting and marking.
3. Two old wonderful English cabinetmakers chisels, an Exacto knife and some fresh turned handles.
4. Burning down the house. Press here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNnAvTTaJjM (Classic).
5. Exacto humiliation.
6. Fitting the pieces.

Here you find the original post: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/42395 and a link for the last blog.
(I might be more of a toolmaker than a woodworker, but I sure have fun, and what is better than to use tools you have made or restored).

Hope it can be to some inspiration,

Best thoughts,

MaFe

Great handles! Love that shape. Tools are the most fun thing to make, by far!

Very nice. One of the best parts of being a woodworker is making the tools that you can use on other projects. It just adds a greater sense of bride to what ever you make. :)
