  1. Try square and dovetail markers for 2014 tool swap

    The blade and stock of the try square are QSWO and the dovetail markers are hard maple. Not much else to say, I guess! The try square went to DaddyZ and the dovetail markers to CFrye.
  2. Winter 2013/14 Tool Swap: Plumb Level and Center Marker

  3. Dovetail Set for Tool Swap

    This is the dovetail set I made for the most recent tool swap. The woods are walnut and quilted/birdseye maple. Everything was made from stuff I already had laying around the shop. The dovetail markers are 1:4, 1:6, and 1:8 marked by the brass pins. The marking gauge was made to extend a max...
  4. CFrye's Tool Swap Beam Compass and Winding Sticks

    From the beginning of this Measurement and Layout swap I wanted to make a beam compass. I searched on line, repeatedly, and was surprised at how few I found that were all or mostly all wood. Nothing wrong with metal beams or trammells, just not what I wanted to do (although I was really tempted...

    My entry for this year's Marking and Measuring Tool Swap was a wooden square; made of laminated sections of Osage Orange and Ziricote; and pinned with black Micarta pins.

  7. Layout Swap Dividers and Sliding Bevel

    This is my pair of items for the latest Layout Tool Swap for LJ user RickM. The dividers are my second attempt at making those and these were hard to let go of. They came out a lot better than my first pair.. so much so I am tempted to try a third time for myself. They are made from Maple and...
  8. Try Square and Tools Handles for the Swap

    Here's the Roubo influenced try squares I made for the latest Lumberjocks swap. They are made of quartersawn bubinga and quartersawn white oak, with brass pins.
