Dovetail alert – seen at the Woodworking in America conference in St Charles, IL.
Bob Zajicek, of Czeck Edge Hand Tool, will be introducing a new dovetail chisel. This new chisel will feature a tapered and beveled rib, as shown in the prototype in the photo above. The tapered bevel will allow getting into the tighter corners now being used by craftsmen who prefer cutting dovetails with a steep(er) angle, such as 14°. The resin-impregnated handle will remain, a huge plus to chopping without worry of damaging it with a mallet.
