I have been busy prepping to end my time in the Marine Corps but have still found time for tool making. Here are a few recent saws and a marking gauge I’ve made over the past couple months. I’m pretty stoked about the marking gauge and am happy to say that it works well and features a micro-adjust.

All the tools are made from raw stock. Here are a few pictures of the process if anyone is interested.

Very fine work sir.
Was/is the rising sun your mark? If so, do you brand all of your tools in one way or another?
Congrats with the end of your service as well.

Remind me to talk to you about making a much-improved version of the LV pocket marking gauge sometime.

Some very beautiful work there Erik. On the one hand I greatly envy your metal working skills , but on the other hand, my wife told me I better stop making tools and start making projects! I loved the saw totes and I’m wondering what kind of wood you used for them. I wish you all the best for your coming civilian life.
