I make tools as I go according to what I need at the time. I made these from some scrap from a bookcase project.

Great use for scrap! Not to mention the savings in buying new. Keep up the good work.

Thank you everyone.

The pins are just hardware store dowels.

I do the same thing when it comes to making some tools. Yours are wonderful, I really envy the panel gauge which is something I need but haven’t made yet.

What a great way to use up those scraps. It’s projects like these that cause most of us to hang on to every piece of wood we have. Thanks for the post.
