Here we go then with the next video in this free series introducing the new woodworker to the basic kit of handtools. All the tools featured here are tried and tested for their indispensability and general usefulness and, with the addition of one or two power tools – notably a cordless drill – they will enable you to take on nearly any woodworking or DIY job you might encounter.
It’s worth pointing out that the info contained in the videos isn’t the full, complete and definitive guide to all tools everywhere, but is an entry-level introduction and simple explanation of the mostly commonly used woodworking tools in the average kitbag.
Woodworker’s Kitbag – Chisels
Possibly one of the most useful of all edge tools, a set of sharp chisels in your kitbag really tells the world that you’re taking your woodworking seriously. Used for forming joints, general shaping and probably a thousand other tasks, the chisel plays an important part in all aspects of woodworking.
About This Free Woodwork Video Lesson
In this video we take a look at the popular type of chisel and consider just what you will need for setting up a toolkit. If at all possible, try to get a feel of a chisel before you buy it, and don’t rule out second hand tools as you can really get some good stuff at boot fairs and similar – if you’re careful / lucky.
