Chisels are cutting and shaping tools that are essential to many carpentry jobs. All the chisels shown here have straight blades. Curved-blade chisels, known as gouges, are used to cut curves in wood and rounded corners.

Because chisels must be kept sharp, they need to be stored carefully. Chisels often come with plastic covers that clip over the end of the chisel blade to protect it. These covers should always be used when the chisel is not in use. The alternative is to store the chisels in a specially designed case.
