A chisel is a tool that is used for shaping wood. It is a tool with a long blade having a bevelled cutting edge that is used together with a mallet.
A sharp wood chisel can cut mortises, shave rough surfaces, chop out corners and scrape off glue.
Woodworking chisels range from small hand tools for tiny details, to large chisels used to remove big sections of wood, in ‘roughing out’ the shape of a pattern or design.
Typically, in woodcarving, one starts with a larger tool, and gradually progresses to smaller tools to finish the detail
They are designed to effortlessly remove massive amounts of material on any woodturning project without the need for sharpening.
