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,
