Here is a really, really simple, yet effective thing that anyone can make. I decided to make some dovetail joints, or at least atempt :), but without proper tools that will be difficult so I decided to get some tools (I’m still working on geting those) But I didn’t want to buy a scribe since it is so easy to make, I simply cut about an 8 inch peice of dowel, drilled a hole that’s 1/16 inch in the end, and pushed a needle in tight. Then I cut a oval-ish shape on the bandsaw, and kinda sanded it. Then I cut a 5/8 inch hole which happend to be really tight on the dowl, so no screw stop was needed, it is simply friction held in. It is all made of poplar (I don’t know if I spelled that right) Olapsed time: 5min :)
Overall this is a really simple and fast solution to makeing a scribe, instead of buying one.
