I’ve been looking at David's blog on the fibonacci calipers, and various google results and i’m so excited to check this out. This was put together with a piece of padauk that was a cutoff given to me by an uncle. I don’t know how he gets stuff cut so thin, but I’ve been waiting for something cool to make with it. Sanded through 600 grit, and then put to the polishing wheel with HUD wax. The pins are just 1/4” dowel and some left over toy wheel axle caps. This one is about 6 inches long, and I want to make a thicker one that’s longer. Maybe even a tiny one for my sketch book. I guess it’ll depend on if I can get the feel for how to use it :)
updated: I made another one of these for my Great Uncle. He’s a wood worker too, and I thought that he might get a kick out of it. It’s maple, with brass screws. It is polished on the wheel with HUT wax. The maple really polishes up well and has a great feel in the hand.
