I have had a few days off between Christmas and new years and have hidden myself in my shop as best I can from friends and family I have been thinking of making some boxes from some oak panels I got from some cabinet makers I was working with they had scraps and extra they didn’t want. In order to make the boxes ” haven’t started them yet ” I wanted a marking gauge when I made the blade for it I had extra so I made a second blade and used it to make a marking knife it took longer for the epoxy to harden than I had expected cold weather I guess

Should work. Most glues and epoxy need 45*F or above to work.
