A chisel is a sharp-bladed tool used for carving hard materials such as wood, metal or stone, often in conjunction with a driving force such as a hammer. A gouge is a type of chisel used with wood.

A "brace-and-bit", or brace, is usually used to drill holes in wood by applying pressure to the top of the tool while rotating the body.
