  1. Hello Ben, Those Dutchman joints are amazing, and the joints give such character to the headboard, and that is done using a chisel ? Ben can you recommend a decent set of chisels for a beginner? Thank you

    • Thanks Miguel! I use a router to cut the majority of the patches and bow ties, and then just cut the corners with a chisel–it really depends upon what the the patch requires. Most of my chisels are old Stanley 750s. I get them on ebay. Best of luck!
