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.
