I’ve never used a marking or cutting gauge before but I’ve got on ordered fron Lee Valley that will be here tomorrow. It’s a wheel cutter type and I understand it’s easer to use. While I was searching what types I might be interested in, I ran across several that different ones made themselves and I thought, why not give it a try. This is what I come up with.
Quarter sawn oak for the base, black walnut, I think and a couple pieces of purple hart for the beam. The cutter is from a pack I picked up at lowes and the one I used was a single angle but it was too long. I ground it down and put a bevel on it. It could use a little more honing probably. I finished it with BLO.
