Here’s the project that finally got completed today during my winter break. These chisels have been lying around unfinished for almost a year. All it need is some finish on the handles. I throw on couple of coats of shellac and call it good. I am not sure if I actually need a pair of angle paring chisels but now, I got a pair. The chisels are old chisels that have been re-grinded. The back has been lapped (seems to take forever). I could of lap some more but I’ll save it for future sharpening. It was old rusty chisels that I accumulated form different sales. I really didn’t have any use for it.
Wood is locust.
Copper (water pipe) ferrule.
Leather washers at the rear (4).
Approximate Dimensions: See pictures.
Chisel: No markings, tang, beveled, Grinded as angle paring chisel.
Looks like I am ready for more chisel handles as I got blanks set up. Leather washers are optional.
Locust and walnut blanks.
Leather washer glued on to the handle.
Leather washers made from scrape leather. Evidently, I got bags of it from last year.
