In the French wedging style all hand cut with tools, no machinery. I forgot the name for the wood that the stock is made of on the maple armed one last picture some very nice to work with African hardwood very oily surface. wood (haha) do very well for a plane bottom, I don’t know about the wear resistance though. the other is a quarter- sawn red oak. Both have brass wear strips. I thought they turned out pretty well considering I have never done any metal inlay work before. this is my favorite style of marking gauge if you have many different measurements to gauge. the reason for that is the one handed adjustment, just hit the smaller side of the locking wedge once on the top of your bench and adjust.
