« Part 10: Just a glue-up-du-jour Part 11 of Adventures in Lutherie series Part 12: A few shots from my day »

I needed a place to use a chisel to cut small wedges out of maple for rehairing violin bows. The benchtop has a piece of carpet on it and I didn’t want to damage anything anyway. I made a small bench dog to give me something to push against and cut into without worry. It’s made with a scrap of oak that I had. The cleats are just glued on but are holding up fine.

The wedge I msade is the small bit of wood with the dot on it just at the corner of the chisel. I believe it’s a 1/2 inch chisel.
