I always wanted more marking gauges. Spent an evening in the shop and now I have 4! The beams are spalted birch and the fences are Padouk, Cocobolo, Black Walnut and Purpleheart. I did some experimenting with different shapes and I like the Cocobolo one best for feel. The cutters are a mortise marking head from a Lee Valley wheel gauge, two 1/4” ID washers honed to a fingernail profile and a blade from a cheap carving knife. I think I like the sharpened washers best but I am still looking for the best solution but these work for now. I will also be replacing the bolts with some knurled bolts at some point. Thanks for looking.
