no previous part Part 1 of Marking Gauge series Part 2: making progress »

While sorting through the free wood I picked up last week I had the idea to make marking gauge and set a few pieces of walnut aside for it. I cut out the marking gauge with the band saw and then planed the faces smooth.

I used a drill and cleared most the waste before chiseling out the mortise for the beam to go through.

It needs a little fine tuning on the fit. I am going to have to make sure that the beam is square with both faces

I plan on using a xacto knife blade instead of the marking pin a lot of older marking gauges use.
