Made This marking gauge and presentation box for a friend of mine. I made the box out of pine because I figured that gift isn’t a gift if it isn’t wrapped and what woodworker wouldn’t want a gift wrapped in wood. Made of scrap ipe and a strip of curly maple. I made all of the hardware with brass items from the local hardware store and the cutter is made from a nail that I shaped and sharpened. The pie is very hard material and I figure that it should be good for a lifetime of use. Only thing I wish I had done different would have been to make myself one as well.

Nice job. I like it and now have to make one for me.

This thing kept me up last night. I am laying it out in my mind. I think the main difference I will make will be to use a blade rather than a point. Let me know if you think that is the wrong direction (and why).

Thanks for the inspiration.

I think a blade would be better. If I did it again I would make a blade with a rounded tip from hss
