About to make some windows and after my last project, I realized that sometimes a pencil line is not accurate enough. I’m also hoping that cut marks will help to prevent tear-out in oak. (can only hope)
All made from scraps. Handle of gauge is a part of my shop broom which I re-purposed, and had to just reduce the size a little so whipped up a quick and dirty dowel making jig (last picture).It’s beech.
Body is massaranduba flooring offcuts laminated together for thickness. Blade on both items is old CS blade.
10 points if you guess what I took the knurled thumb screw from ?
The marking knife handle is the leftovers from my smallest cutting board. I drilled holes through the blade and also shallow holes on the inside of the handle so the construction adhesive I used to glue it would get a better grip.
It certainly holds well enough.
