Made for my best friend Simon’s birthday. I got inspiration from several lumberjocks as well as Bridge City Toolworks. This one is made of South American Rosewood and brass. The one inch thumb nuts were hand turned on an old South Bend machine lathe and hand knurled. They are held in place by one inch set screws. The finish is Sam Maloof oil/wax finish.

So as I’m looking at this tool I’m thinking “It’s really a nice looking tool, but what the heck is this thing used for?”

And as I scroll down to ask, I see your link. Thanks Jerry, you saved me ( and probably others who wont admit it) the trouble of doing a Google search for a KerfMaker !

Nice job. Looks like it was commercially made !

I have seen a lot of these but this one is gorgeous!
I think the choice of wood and brass is excellent.
A really nice tool.
