Toolsday: Woodworking Picks

When I first started working with chisels to do joinery, I found it very difficult to get the little bits of wood out of the bottom of mortises and things like that. Then I found this set of picks, scrapers, cutters, and priers at the Harbor Freight

Woodworking Picks

Each of these double-ended stainless steel tools is only about six inches long, so you can see that the heads are small enough to squeeze into tight spaces and lever out waste. In conjunction with a set of tweezers, this set of detailing tools makes things much easier. Better would be improving my precision when cutting, but the mean time these help me clean up some of my sloppiness.
