Buyer's Guide To Woodworking Chisels (5/13) | Wood And Shop Woodworking Hand Tool Buying Guide #5: Chisels (Part 5/13) By Joshua Farnsworth Introduction to Buying Chisels It’s easy to spend way to much money on the wrong chisels. After several months you’ll discover that it doesn’t work as you had hoped. I’ll talk about the three types of chisels that you need to get started with the basics: Bench chisels, Mortising chisels, and paring chisels. Main Chisel Types (Bench, Mortise, Paring): Before you start buying chisels I want to simplify a couple things.

These are, I believe, the finest jewelry boxes being made in the US today, with interiors featuring storage details that make them as superior functionally as they are beautiful.
