To ease the measuring process when turning spindles and cavities, I devised this handy, precise yet simple double duty V-gauge. The whole assembly is about 7-1/2” X 10-1/2” X 1” thick.
Only four pieces were required:
An isocele triangle made from a 1/4” hardboard scrap
A piece of 1/4” hardboard backer
Two 3/4’’-thick scraps (I had Melamine – obvious)
Using a rule, trace and mark appropriate lines on the isocele triangle and you’re done. To set your calipers, use the triangle in or out of its nest.
All construction details are on this page of my blog.
