Anchoring

Apply this technique at all times combined with both the pinch and fist positions. The hand, or forearm of the hand, holding the chisel must always be in contact with the workbench or the timber that is being carved. This provides the chisel with a breaking system or anchor.

Notice the hand is pivoted at the wrist when using the fist position.

Always anchor the hand holding to chisel to the work or workbench
