I made this Marking Gauge to submit in The Hand Tool Build off 2017 held by James Wright of ‘Wood by Wright’
It is made from Oak and Poplar and uses an Allen Key as the marker :)

Here is a link to the Instructable and how I make them https://www.instructables.com/id/Marking-Gauge-for-Woodworking

Good luck in the competition Chris! Allen keys are used for all kinds of things.

Thanks for the comments everyone :)

John, I’m more interested in giving it to someone else at the end of the competition :D I really like the idea of a tool swap :)

Rick, It hasn’t left the workbench since I made it. It’s become my go to gauge. I have some large projects beginning soon and I know this tool will be used a lot :D

Interesting! Wouldn’t have thought to use an allen key.

Have your say...
