What is Chisel  and How to use a Chisel

A chisel is a cutting device with a ground edge on the end of a metal blade, often used with a hammer to work, shape, or finish a solid material such as wood, stone, or metal.

How do you use a chisel?

It is essential to choose the type of chisel best suited for the job being performed. Other factors such as the size of the chisel and the shape of the blade should also be considered.

Work should begin with a general inspection of the chisel to ensure it is in the best possible condition. The flatness of the blade can be checked with an angle. It may be necessary to sharpen the chisel to ensure that it is well protected throughout the process.

Once the tool is in order, you can use a ruler and carpenter’s square to measure the area and depth removed during the chiseling process. You should then clamp the wood to ensure utterly stable during the chiseling process.

Here are some of the chisel tools I have found.
