Once I was happy with that I decided to go with 1” wide tails and drew out the boards and began cutting them out with my only back...

Well Thursday ended on a good note because of this .When I got home from work tired as usual I noticed the mail on the counter and there was this thicker then normal envelop among the envelops .My curiosity made me open that envelop first and it was a little bevel gauge made by Paul (Shipwright ) with a wonderful letter from Paul .Paul patterned this gauge after one that he used during his working years along many other tools and I had noticed it in a blog of his and commented that I wish th...

Of course it won’t do everything a sliding bevel gauge will do, but it does have the advantage of a built-in angle scale. Since it is larger than a bevel gauge the bar can mark further into the work piece and it is also easier to find in a messy shop.

SquarerulerbevelangelbanditOr just a old English set square and bevel gauge, becoming a transformer!

I also gave it some new ...
