So lately I’ve been increasingly more interested in tool making and these babies are my latest effort. They are a pair of 20 degree skew detail chisels intended for cleaning up dovetails. The blades are O1 tool steal that I ground to shape and heat treated myself. The handles were hand shaped out of some wonderful tiger maple. However, I think a turned handle would also be nice and much faster. This has got me thinking about acquiring a lathe, hah!
