So I take a lot of pride in the things I build and more so if it’s a tool. I have been wanting to make a marking gauge as opposed to buying one for that reason. So here it is. A mash up of Japanese and western styles with a self capturing wedge. Made from black walnut and hard maple. The knife I made from a pair of surgical stainless suture removal scissors.

I hope to make one so nice. I need to do so. It’s been on the list for awhile… Well done! Thanks for the inspiration!
