« Part 3: some progress Part 4 of Marking Gauge series no next part

The fence is cut to shape and sanded with grit 60. Further sanding will bring the brass screws flush with the brass plate.

Next, will cut the brass shoes and cut slit in the rod.

The Honduran rosewood is really tough as far as sanding goes, even with low grits.

Great work. I’ve wanted to make one for years… someday I’ll get to it.
