I was briefly detoured from a couple projects by my new found love of the lathe. I got up early this morning and turned a few things. Found some old locust posts kicking around so I cut one down for a couple chisel handles. I really like old socket chisels. One was a $1 find (TH Witherby!), the other (Samson) was sitting in the shop drawer with no handle and a mushroomed end from misuse. So a cleaning and new handles for both! I also made a chisel mallet from a mulberry log from my parents property. I may make a hammer style mallet once I see if I like this one or not. Now I can get back to other things, including my dads desk, so I can use my new old chisels. I’ve spent more time in a wood shop this summer than I have in at least 15 years.
