Marking Gauge

An heirloom-quality marking gauge is not only a functional and attractive tool, but a pleasure to use when laying out joinery.

Making your own hand tools is a great way to personalize your shop. This marking gauge is a tool that’s sure to see lots of action. The beauty of rosewood, a traditional tool wood, is hard to deny. But any special piece of hardwood will work just fine. The marking gauge is a classic design consisting simply of a beam and fence. On the beam, a thin brass strip acts as a wear plate and a small wedge holds the shop-made blade in place.
