The second episode of our new hand tool woodworking show is all about one of the most essential tools for the old-timey woodworker: The marking gauge! In fact Stumpy applies his woodworking wit and wisdom to three types of gauges, building a marking gauge, a mortise gauge, and a cutting gauge; all three with just a few hardwood scraps and a little bench time. At the end you’ll have a deeper understanding of this critical tool, not to mention three of them to call your own!
The Old Timey Workshop is a monthly podcast produced independently of Blue Collar Woodworking. It will feature woodworking projects built with the tools and techniques of the past, while finding new ways to enjoy the workshop.
