Here is a pair of sliding bevel gauges that were taken from a plan in ShopNotes magazine. I have made four of these so far, 2 were gifts for Christmas last year, and these just got finished today. They are made out of cocobolo and 1” wide by 1/8” thick 360 brass sheet. The plan called for 1 ft length of this brass with zero waste. It was a fun project. The cocobolo looks nice against the brass.
Finished with BLO and really thin varnish that was rubbed out with #000 steel wool.
