Super posts as usual. The kerfing chisel is really handy, that uncut area in the half blind dovetail is always a pain. It's pretty amazing to me it does the job with a square edge, but as you said it's the thickness of the chisel that does the job. I also see you recently added a page to your website that goes into making one, very well done. 

Question about your comment on your website that Tage Frid used a piece of a bandsaw blade for this. How do he use that with no handle?

He used it in the same way as a scraper blade - removed the teeth and hammered it in.

@derekcohen hopefully my chisels I currently have lying dormant, wrapped in newspaper in some hastily-constructed, glued-and-nailed plywood drawers never see your posts because then they will know the true extent of their neglect. Your builds are a great inspiration for what I'd like to do when I can make more time in the shop.
