My Chisels

A good set of quality chisels is essential to any woodworker, whether you use power tools or not. I’ve been told that these Irwin chisels (formerly Marples) are well worth the money (I paid $30 for this set of four).

I purchased a set of chisels here in country last time we were out here, but I didn’t know that chisels (or planes) were not considered sharp when you get them out of the box. You still have to sharpen them! Wow, that would have saved me a lot of grief had I known that.
