Cutting gauges (MaFe like)

I’m looking for a gift for my dad (dad’s day and dad’s birthday also), and as one of his hobbies is woodworking since many year, I know that a cutting gauge made by myself will please him.

As I’ve read and learn many with this MaFe's blog (thx again!) I decide to do one for him and one for me cause I like the design of this one.

I’ve use oak, brass and stainless-steel. For the finish I’ve use “old style sheen” (I’m not sure for the translation, in French “Patine à l’ancienne”, this is shellac based) and really like the result.

I just need to perfect the cutter side, but I’m to busy for the moment.

Have a good day everybody!

Seb

Very nice. You might want to put a washer under the wing nut on the beam so it doesn’t tear up the wood when tightening.

Very nice. I second the idea of a stainless steel flat washer under the wing nut.

Hi Seb,
They are really cool.
I like infact the hardware, makes it more cool.
Your father will be really happy I’m sure – wish I had a child like you.
Best thoughts,
