  1. Wedge Marking Gauge

    Found the plan here: http://www.popularwoodworking.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/0612_Marking_Gauge.pdf I changed it to accept a blade instead of a pin. However, i made the mistake of putting the wedge on the wrong side of the blade so it can not mark less than 5/16" of an inch. I could...
  2. Panel gauge (wheel cutter)

    Panel gauge with brass bar and wheel cutter. Here a panel gauge I made to match my other gauges, and my deep gauge in same design, ohhh yes and to enjoy making it. It has a Veritas wheel cutter wheel in one end and a whole for a pin or a pencil in the other, it's fitted with a brass bar, but...
  3. Simple marking gauge

    Simple little marking gauge made from cherry. The blade was cut from a retired circular saw blade (that was some work hacksawing that free!). The wedge can be moved by the same hand holding the gauge to make the gross adjustments. Then fine adjustments are made by tapping the ends of the beam...
  4. Slitting / Marking Gauge

    Oak and Brass. Uses an X-Acto knife blade to make the mark and get a good start on the knife line. The slot is large enough for a thicker blade if needed.

  6. Dovetail Marking Gauge

    I enjoy cutting dovetails by hand and I enjoy making my own tools. This little gauge was fun to make. I hack sawed the brass shape from 1/8" stock and cleaned it up with a file. I riveted it to a hardwood guide block with two copper nails. The one end has a 1:5 slope, suitable for softwoods...
  7. Mahogany Marking Gauge

    My Father had found an old mahogany lamp I had made in high school shop class, while cleaning out his garage. The lamp was made more than 25 years ago and wasn't done very well. The glue joints had all begun to separate, the finish was flaking off and lamp head kept falling off because I...
  8. Simple Marking Gauge.

    I was looking at a picture of a commercially made marking gauge and thought I can do that. The result is in the photos. The center "ruler" sides through a mortice in the body. A cut has been made in one side so the screw can pull the top and bottom together locking the centre in place. Not...
  9. Japanese Kebiki Dai (Marking Gauge)

    If you prefer not to read, the video is here View on YouTube This was a project I had been really wanting to try, this is the first one I've made and it's not perfect, but it's nothing that a little fiddling won't fix. I had really wanted a marking/cutting gauge just for general use and for...
  10. Marking Gauge

    The plan for this gauge was in popularwoodworking.com It was one of my rainy day activity projects-and we have a had a lot of those… rainy days that is. It marks lines, cracks nuts and can be a meeting gavel. uh, your multipurpose tool? I did not put a finish on it. Thought I'd leave it...

    This last week, I made a handful of homemade shop tools. Starting at the the top left and going clockwise: a marking gauge [walnut], a couple magnetic dovetail saw guides (1:8 and 1:6) [cherry and oak], and a 90 degree magnetic saw guide [walnut and oak].

    This one was made when I lived in a apartment out on the deck with only a jigsaw,drill,file and six 1-1/2" c clamps also some glue and screws. That way I could take it apart when I moved.
  15. Lamb's Tongue Gauge

    Lamb's Tongue Gauge - While working in the shop today, I decided to add a chamfer/lamb's tongue detail to my Reformation Era Prie Dieu, along the sides. A lark's tongue is a simple scoop from the arris to the face of the chamfer, as see along the stiles and rails around the...
  16. Marking Gauge

    This marking gauge is made from New Zealand Black Marie and Australian Blackwood. I used an old jigsaw blade for the blade. Finished with teak wax. I will make another one next week and video it for you guys.
  17. Marking gauge (wheel) - Gramil (rueda)

    My first marking gauge. The stock is guayubira (Patagonula americana) and the beam palo blanco (Calycophyllum multiflorum). The washer is made of steel, so the blade is longer sharp. Unfortunately did not get a smaller diameter washer. Not yet used it, when put to the test will update...

  20. Combination Japanese Marking Gauge

    The proper name for this is "Nihon Sao Suji Kebiki Dai" which, loosely translated, means " Go to your drawer and find the smallest and loveliest of your saved wood scraps and see if you can't make a passable tool out of it". So I did. I don't really know what the body is, Kingwood perhaps? but...
