This project turned out to be one of the most used chissel when im turning, I had to make it as the set I bought about a year ago did not contain it. I was able to make it for 50% less than what it cost in the shop. It is made out of ash and has grooves in it for extra grip

Thanks for looking

Hi Callum, and welcome to lumberjocks.

Looks like you got a handle on lathe work alright!

Very nice turning.

This is a nice looking chisel It is nice to be able to customize your own tools rather than simply having to use what comes off the shelf.

Nice post.

Very nice handles for your chisels. Which metal is used for the ring at the bottom of the handle? Is it press fit?

Great looking piece.. I was considering what it would take to do my own handles. This gives me some ideas!
