I needed a longer Fibonacci gauge for longer pieces in the lathe so I made this one that is 17 1/2” long.

It is made from Pistachio wood and has stainless steel points and brass pivot pins. I finished it with Danish oil and buffed and waxed the arms.

Cheers, Jim

What! no fractal designs! did you have a power blackout?

Obviously there is something really big to look forward to on the way! (possibly a really big wall hanging?)

A real craftsman’s masterpiece! well done Jim

Well done, Jim. One of these has been on my list of projects I’d like to do for a very long time. I like the stainless points, especially. Congrats on your double top 3 for the day :)
