  1. A Marking Gauge.

    I made this a while ago as I really like to use a precision marking gauge. Followed a design in an English woodworking magazine. Managed to put the cutter on the wrong way but I will rectify that next time I sharpen it. Still works well despite the error.
  2. Inlaid Jewelry Box and Marking Gauge for 2020 Surprise Swap

    The 2020 Surprise Swap was amazing - some true works of art came out of it. This one feels a little light weight, and if I participate again I'll need to up my game. My contributions went to George (Woodmaster1), a master craftsman with an incredible gallery of projects. I made a jewelry box...
  3. Gaugeswap 2013

    Here is the marking gauge I made for Jeff. Below is the letter I included in the package. I wanted to try to make something a little different than the rest of the participants. Little did I know, everone made something a little different for this swap. What a great bunch of tools has come out...

    This is the marking gauge I made for 489tad, It is made from Tzalam and Granadillo (Red Cocobolo) with a 1/4" Brass inlaid in to the rail. Seeing all the gauges made for the swap is really Awe inspiring.. Great work guys, it has truly been a humbling, fun and educational experience!. 2013...
  5. Marking Gauge (for the Gauge Swap)

    So here's the marking gauge I made for the current shop-made tool swap. I actually made two because I knew I'd want to keep one for myself. The gauges are made out of jatoba, which is a hard dense wood, very suitable for this purpose. Plus, jatoba often has such rich colors when given an oil...
  6. Gauge for the Marking Gauge Swap

    So here's the gauge I made for the 2013 marking gauge swap. I laminated blocks of maple and walnut with thin resawn (by hand lol) strips of walnut on the top and bottom. The arm is a maple. The wedge is walnut. I used a threaded insert and thumbscrew along with an embedded piece of brass...
  7. Marking Gauge

    I love using marking gauges but have never been completely satisfied with the selections on the market. My Veritas is great for certain applications by the fence is not wide enough when I need an accurate line more than a couple of inches away from the shoulder. I also have an old style wooden...
  8. Marking Gauge... Almost

    I received Tool-Making Projects for Joinery and Woodworking: A Yankee Craftsman's Practical Methods by Steve A Olesin for Christmas this year (I would have linked to the authors site but he died in 2006). I read the introduction and took a look at the first project, a marking gauge! I was...
  9. Just Another Marking Gauge

    Well as I've seen quite a few of these posted here on LJ, I just had to make one of my own. These are quite costly for a good quality one & I was able to make it my way and keep the cost down too. This project has maybe $20 invested into it, most of that is the brass & knobs. I wanted to be...
  10. Marking Gauge (Kebiki Dai)

    I have had my marking gauge loosen and screw up marking lines on more than one occasion, well not any more. Today I made a Japanese Kebiki and wish I would have made this long before now. Its made from quarter sawn chestnut oak and the wedge is rosewood and finished with oil/poly mix. It fits...
  11. Shop-Made Tool Swap 2013 - Marking Gauge

    Made for ksSlim for the gauge swap. Woods are Padauk and Walnut. Finish is tung oil and wax.
  12. Marking Gauge

    If I'm going to make any more hand cut dovetails, I need a good marking gauge that puts a very fine line on the wood. I was going to buy one but I found this cutter at Woodcraft for $5 so I decided to design my gauge around it. I like my home made tools to be made of rosewood but I am very...
  13. Almost Duplicate Marking Gauge from LJ Tool Swap

    No, you're not going crazy, thinking that you've already seen this project post. Last week, I posted the marking gauge I made for the tool swap, and I made an almost duplicate one for me. I went through the same steps of milling, chopping, bandsawing, filing, sanding, grinding, and sharpening...
  14. Wenge Marking Gauge

    Made this gauge for http://lumberjocks.com/DonBroussard as part a a Shop-made Tool Swap on the forum. The knobs are designed for use as drawer knobs. The notch on the back is for a pencil. The last picture is of my prototype gauge from ipe.
  15. Padauk Marking Gauge

    These are some pics of the gauge I sent to Waho6o9. I made it from padauk and brass. I think it turned out pretty well, although I wasn't very happy with the length of the blade, and I screwed up cutting the mortise and had to make a small patch for it. He seems to like it though so it was all...
  16. Marking Gauge & Marking Knife

    Since deciding to venture into woodworking, I decided that I want to make as many of my tools as I could, hoping to learn as I go. This is my second project since joining Lumberjocks. I've spent many years using power tools and doing general construction type carpentry, so I have some knowledge...
  17. Cocobolo Marking Gauge

    I made this marking gauge for my brother-in-law. I've always liked the dragonfly form and I've been wanting to make a marking gauge, so thought why not make one in the form of a dragonfly. I cut the cocobolo to size (as well as the dado for the blade arm) on my table saw. The slot in the blade...
  18. Matching end tables

    I made a pair of these. The wood used is clear pine. The drawer is 1/2" poplar and the drawer bottom oak plywood. The top is a glue up of two 1×12's. I match jointed them with a #7. I finished the top with a smooth plane and chamfered it lightly with a block plane. Legs and supports are 6/4...
  19. Mallet and marking gauge

    This is for the Swap. The Mallet and marking gauge bodies are made of laminated Brazillian tiger mahogany with two strips of curly maple. The handles are Cherry. This was my first time making a marking gauge and using a mortiser. I used aluminum for the metal inlay and smoothed the end of the...
