Some news of my latest work (still in progress).
After the preliminary drawing, I started with the engraving on the selected slate plate.
It’s long, very long… one hour and a half later I’m not really further…
My usual chisel (made out of a butter knife) is not sufficient as I have quite a lot of matter to remove so I made a new tool with a steel shaft.
I flattened one end with a hammer before sharpening it with a grindstone.
For the other end, I drilled a cork and stuck it on the shaft.
And here I am, with a brand new chisel perfectly ergonomic.
