  1. Marking Gauge for Swap

    Posting this early because I will be out of town for a couple weeks. This is the gauge I made for JordanP, padauk and poplar. Iron is made from a hex key. If I were to do anything different, I would cut the round mortise then glue on the padauk with just a small hole for the iron but live and...
  2. A lil marking gauge

    Something I made after a few years of banging dents in my bench with gauges that would not get to JUST the space I wanted them. Then you bang it back a bit….oops..bit more. Lump this for a bad business, I dont have time for this [email protected]$t. Unfortunately not my idea, just my version. Found this in...
  3. Marking Gauge Tool Swap 2013

    This is the Marking Gauge I made for CosmicSniper in the latest Shopmade Tool Swap. Made from Padauk, Cherry and Brass. I have never made one of these before.. hell I have never used one so I was pretty nervous about the build. Add to that the fact that I was a bit rushed with the fit and...

    I made this marking gauge for the LJ 2013 Gauge swap. Sent it off to Lake Lover. The wood is Macassar ebony. the round cutter is a replacement cutter from Lee Valley. The steel rod I got from McMaster Carr. It was a nice little project and one that I hope Lake Lover finds useful.

    Here is a gauge that I made for the gauge swap. I hand forged the Damascus steel for the blade. The body is tiger maple, the beam is zebra wood and the wedges are cherry. This was sent to Hammerthumb and I believe he likes it. I go in a bit more detail here.

  8. Oddball Marking Gauge for the Swap

    I had a blast designing and executing this tool. These swaps are are good way to make you gear up to do good work. For this swap I thought the durability of purpleheart would be a boon…it was, once the infernal thing was done. I have issues making a perfect "showpiece" tool…I can never bring...

    Here is the gauge I made for Mark Kornell. I went with my version of a Kinshiro japanese marking gauge. The body is walnut with a zebrawood wear strip an the blade is a strip of 3/16" thick O1 tool steel. This was a 100% hand tool build except for a some grinding on the blade. I put a lot of...
  10. 2013 Marking Gauge Swap

    This is a gauge that I made for Tim, as my contribution to the swap. Very old rosewood, that's been waiting about 50 years for a project, and brass. The blade was made from a worn out disposable planer blade. It gave me an opportunity to put my new to me milling machine to work.
  11. Fleet of marking gauges (2013 Tool Swap)

    Made a whole fighter wing of marking gauges when constructing the ones for the tool swap. The design is loosely based on David Barron's mini marking gauge. I did email David before using the design and he graciously gave permission to do so. The thing I like most is that it is very compact...

    This is my first marking gauge I have made so far. It is made according the article written by Matt Kenney in issue number 211 of Fine Woodworking magazine. Made with scraps of red oak for the beam and the fence while the wedge is cocobolo. Dimensions are as follows, Beam: .5"T x 1"W x 7"L ...
  13. Marking Gauge

    Today I made a layout marking gauge, a simple style with one arm. I think hard wood will be more durable, so I am using a small piece of walnut. (At least I think it is walnut.) These first pics are the basic cuts and assembly. Then it was on to planning the surfaces smooth, chamfering the...
  14. Shop made Marking Gauges (Reclaimed/left over wood)

    These are the first marking gauges i made a while back. the one on the left i believe is Mahagony that was removed from an old dresser it uses a can opener blade to make the cuts and a t-nut with an epoxied piece of all thread placed in a cheap wooden pull. the second is made from Tzalam...
  15. Bubinga Marking Gauge

    Here is the marking gauge I made for this tool swap and sent to raggedKerf. The wood is Bubinga from the scrap bin, believe it or not, especially the beam portion which I saved from a bud's burn pile after being used for a router practice piece numerous times. The threads for thumbscrew are...
  16. Marking Gauge Swap

    This is the marking gauge I made for the LJ Marking Gauge Tool Swap for fellow LJ JayT. This is my first time in an LJ Tool Swap, so my gauge is functional, but not as polished as the other fantastic tools made by other participants. The wood is purple heart, and it comes from my brother's...
  17. Marking Gauge for Gaugeswap

    Here is my marking gauge for the gauge swap. It went to GatorJim so it has a great new home. I liked it so much that I made myself one. However, I kept the test piece; I sent Jim the second one that came out better. My goal was to make a gauge that had the best features of gauges that I liked...
  18. Marking Guage Swap 2013

    I made three gauges for the swap. I sent a Walnut one to Matt (Only Just Me). The design is based off the ones at Hamiltontools.com. The blades were bought from there as well. The other inserts, screws and bits all came from McMaster Carr. These are my first attempts at gauges, so I wanted...
  19. Marking Guage for Ripthorn - Swap 2013

    This is the marking gauge that I made for the 2013 Marking Gauge Swap. This one got sent off to Ripthorn. I had to figure out who my recipient was by first and last name (differed from their screen name). Then looked through his projects, and decided this would be a perfect theme for me to...
  20. A marking gauge from Denmark (I think)...

    Hi, I promised my Italian buddy to post some pictures of this beautiful fellow. I did not make him, just bought him with some old tools. Al I can tell is that he used to be the normal one here, and that I remember it all the way back from public school.
