To change things up a bit from making projects, I made a couple of tools. A cutting gauge and a mortising gauge. I used hickory and bloodwood hardwood scraps for both items. 1/4” square brass rod and 1/8” round rod for the brass parts. The blade on the cutting gauge is just a little scrap of angle iron I cut out and sharpened up on my disk sander. I could have used brass thumbscrews, but saved about $20 (seriously) and just went with plain old zinc covered steel. They both work great!
I spent probably $25 for the materials.
Finish is just some wiped on boiled linseed oil.
