The short answer to this is you can learn absolutely anything you want to learn by yourself, as long as you have patience, dedication, and work through the hurdles.
What I recommend instead though is to still learn on your own, but involve other people in the form of books and videos.
You can save yourself quite a bit of struggle and effort simply by looking at how an expert uses the same tools. You can find an expert in a book, and you can also find an expert on YouTube.
Instead of struggling to figure out which is the best way, simply learn the best way from one of these experts and then all you have to do is practice it.
This saves you tons of time experimenting on methods, and puts you right to the front of the line with the best method.
Now, all you need to do is practice, practice, practice.
Don’t stress over whether your method is good or not, because you know that it is. Once you are well practiced, you’ll be able to use your chisels, and all of your other tools very well.
