Today i was making bigg mortise on my mallet head.Its mallet for splitnig wood. I mean when axe get stucked in wood you just hit it with a mallet and it split wood.Or relase axe from wood.And i make a some mortise i cant go deeper.Because it get tight and my chisiel is bending:huh:. Lilte secret i dont use regular chisiel i use beveled edge chisiel.I try to find that kind chisiel in hardwere but i only find beveled edge. ANd i think i will have some job to do.To make new handle for chisiel. I will pick up hornbeam for that tool.Because its strong wood.And i think it can better take striking.
