Default not very used to this kind of stuff

Just logged on to your forum as I reefed my finger with a chisel yesterday as I was trying to make a dovetail joint. As I'm into forced idleness for a few days I thought I might look up the internet to see if i'd find a better way than trial and error to make this kind of joint.Thats how I got to this website.

Welcome to the forum, Dennis.

Sharp objects and fingers do not mix, as you have found out.

I trust you have a speedy recovery and learn something from the forum whilst convalescing.

Welcome Denis, Glad to hear not as bad as it could have been (stitches better than losing a finger) I did dovetails by hand for a while used dovetail saws and sometimes my scroll saw, now I use templates w/router

When I taught there was a rule to follow. Either two hands on the chisel or one hand on the chisel and the other hand on the mallet. In general that prevents accidents with a chisel.
