Topic tags/keywords: hand tool handtool methods of work forensics mechanisms of injury

Hand tool work can produce some very interesting waste. Like those wonderful paper-thin shavings when a plane iron is set just right. I thought it would be interesting to share photos of interesting waste and see if folks can identify the operation and hand tool that produced said waste. Akin to mechanisms of injury. Seeing an end result and determining the cause.
 
What was I doing, and with what?

Very close, but no. Alder is too valuable to be the prize in some silly contest … shame on you!

Maybe it was a hatchet that was used, those chips are too thick and short for a drawknife.

No hatchet. The chips are approximately 3/16” thick and 9/32” high.

I guess I was thinking they were larger Ron, nice clue. How about chopping the waste on an end grain rabbet with a chisel
