Hi, Happy new year to all. I have been making a family of marking gauges. The smallest one is made of walnut, screw made of ash and the wedge is maple. The medium is made of walnut and the wedge is made of holly. And the bigger one is made of walnut and ash. The blades are japanese steel. The two small ones have a small piece of leather between de screw and the sahft as we usually do eith the worknebche vices. The bigger one is based on the flamnigo marking gauge and it has a small piece with a V shaped groove so it fits the shaft. I hope you like them.

Lovely guages!
Especially like the large one. Think it has fine curves and the wood contrast nicely. Thanks for sharing
