Exotic wood and polished brass come together in a pair of handy layout tools.
Layout is one of the first tasks in any woodworking project. These two shop-made layout gauges can help make that task easier and more accurate. The two gauges work as a team to handle both straight and curved layout work. The pencil point fits into small countersunk holes in the end of each adjustable brass bar for making quick, accurate layouts. They’re a great way to use up small pieces of scrap you just couldn’t throw away. Plus, you can start on them in the morning and be using them on a new project in the afternoon.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
