Tinkers' Construct Wiki

The Chisel is a tool added by TConstruct that allows for the creation of certain special blocks.


To obtain a chisel, create a Tool Rod and a Chisel Head. Place these parts in the appropriate section of a Tool Station or Tool Forge, and pull out a shiny, new chisel.


In the world, you can hold right-click on a block to turn it into its chiseled form, if one is available. For instance, dirt does not have a chiseling recipe. If you are in creative mode, the block will instantly transfrom. If not, an eating animation will show and the block will be changed.

Note: the animation will show whenever you hold right-click, not just when chiseling a block.

The chisel can also be used in the crafting grid, and is shapeless. Some blocks can only be made in the crafitng grid, such as those using items intead of blocks. See the table below.

†Creative only


There is a bug where sometimes when using the right click chiseling method you will chisel a block faster than normal. This can sometimes cause you to chisel a block twice, which is irreversible. It's advised to use the crafting table chiseling method wherever possible.
