    Skew chisels

    Skew chisels-img_0357.jpg
    Here is a pair of left and right skew chisels. The handles are turned from 50 year old rosewood. The chisels themselves were in a sorry state when I salvaged them, ordinary firmers, much abused with broken handles, covered in paint, etc.
    These I fancy are for dovetailing. It may be convenient simply to use a fishtail chisel but I like these better.

    Most of the ones I have made are going to the charity, Workaid, for their shop.Skew chisels-img_0360.jpg
    Do you like the table I made in ash? Gosh, it took a long time to plane!
