Mike & Mads cutting gauge (blog)A gift to a wonderful friend. Before I start the blog I want to share with you why this blog ever came to life and the gauges were made. The truth is I did not need another gauge, I have several, and I just recently finished a panel gauge also. Here on LJ I have meet many wonderful persons, and some I consider personal friends even I never had the joy of meeting them life. Each person for his or her qualities, and for a consistent dialog. One of...

Mike & Mads cutting gauge the box (blog)A gift to a wonderful friend. THE BOX: This is the last part of the series, so for you who step in here, please go back to the beginning: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/21939 The box could have been a blog of its own, but I think it belong here, since it was made for Mike? So after making Mike this cutting gauge, I thought it looked unfinished without a custom made box. I took some pallet wood that I had left from my bucket pro...
Mike & Mads cutting gauge manual (blog)A gift to a wonderful friend. MANUAL: This is the third part, so for you who step in here, please go back to the beginning: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/21939 I don’t know if it is really needed, but thought it was fine? The gauge with the round side of the gauge head facing a curved or circular shape, in this way it can follow any shape. Like this. The cutting gauge with the flat side of the gauge head against a st...
This does not qualify as woodworking, so I’ve placed it here. I don’t have a lot of use for a marking gauge, so I didn’t want to splurge on a manufactured one. I decided to try making a small marking gauge that would have brass elements. I like the look of brass and I’m a cheapskate to boot. I found a plumbing fitting which I felt would work. It was a 3/4 in. x 1/2 in. male adapter MPT x barb. I cut the theads off the 3/4 end with a hack saw and then ground off the re...
Many of you probably cut dovetails with power tools & jigs —and so do I. But for some projects, I really prefer cutting them by hand and I never tire of learning how to do it better. That’s what took me on one of my recent video “treks” (journeys), where I filmed the segment I’ve posted here — this time to the shop of master cabinetmaker Craig Vandall Stevens. In this two-part series, Craig (who studied under James Krenov) uses only a saw, chisel, and several sh...
First of all, my workbench build is far beyond the point that I’m going to share, I just have bunch of pics and I decided to throw them on the blog. There’s nothing special here, but some little documentary to remember. So… For M&T job I made couple of marking gauges out of pine. I know pine is not the best choice for this, I just wanted to practice a little before making marking gauge of my dream. I put pins just where I needed and then just re-inserted...
, , I am so stoked. I found this marking gauge on Patrick Leaches tool site and plunked down some cash. It is precisely as he described it. As is, it is a slitting gauge. It can cut the edges of a dado or rabbet. It has a removable tool steel cutter. I will be able to grind other cutters to cut beads or slots. very cool. Thank you Patrick Leach.
I am building 4 marking gauges and a small panel gauge. Two of the marking gauges and the panel gauge are for me. One gauge is to be a gift and the last gauge is to be sold and the proceeds donated to our woodworking club’s toy building program. I am going to build the French style from PWW. Bob Rozaieski’s podcast and incorporate improvements from the smokum youtube video. Thanks for providing so much good info. So far I have selected some walnut that I was given. It ha...
Went flea market and antique shopping today. and surprising my wife bought nothing and I came home withfour items. How did I do? The modern plane is marked “Fulton 22” and looks to be in decent shape. $15. The old wooden plane looks like it had a rough life. It has a surprisingly sharp blade! $15. I couldn’t turn down the Skill saw clock. It actually ran after I untangled the hands. 1/2 price, 6$. Marking gauge.. either a poor attempt or a ...
