Made these marking gauges to help with a tool cabinet build. Design based on Steve Latta’s marking/slicing gauge
in an older issue of Fine WoodWorking Mag. The one on the right is for marking or slicing veneer. The center is for making a 1/16” groove for inlay. The one on the left is an extra.

Really nice looking!! What did you use for blades? Where did you get the brass thumb screws?

Excellent work on these. The design looks great, especially the elliptical dowel shape.

The tools are great and but the finish on that table top looks greater.
