Carving Chisels

Carving chisels are specialty chisels used to create intricate shapes and forms from timber.


Carving chisels come in a range of shaped profiles ranging from 8 - 40mm in width.

Two Ways To Use Carving Chisels

Pairing: Guiding and pushing the chisel through the timber one can control the cut, pairing small amounts of timber into a desired form one movement at a time.

Striking: Hitting the chisel with a carving mallet allows for larger amounts of wood to be removed. For some techniques, such as carving a traditional scroll, striking the chisel will create the desired sharp curved edge.
