"One size fits all" hand tools didn't offer the precision and control Clark Kellogg needed to lay out and cut dovetails to his own satisfaction, so he made a set of chisels and a dovetail marker of his own. The dovetail marker enables him to lay out angled and straight lines without moving it, and there are five chisels in his dovetail kit, a 1/16-in.-wide chisel to remove waste between tails, a 3/4-in.-wide chisel for paring pins and tails, a pair of skew chisels, and a detail chisel that's triangular in cross-section. Learn how to make each of these tools and bring your dovetails to a new level.
