I made a Fibonacci gauge from some very rare free pallet wood :-) and also rediscovered the therapeutic value of using your no 6 Stanley plane.

Nice one George! What rare metal did you use for the “hinges”? LOL

The hinges are these screws used for scrapbooking or filing. I couldn’t find them in brass, only aluminum so I sprayed them gold. Why settle for brass when you can have gold :-) LOL

Hi George:

Pardon my ignorance, but what is a Fibonacci gauge ? I am thinking it is related to Fibonacci numbers ?

Hi MC
I also only recently learned about a Fibonacci gauge here om LJ’s. It is basically a design tool to help you design projects according to the golden rule. The following link gives a good explanation about this (better than I could explain). The You Tube video there explains it quite nicely. Also take a look at Mafe's project.

Thanks George. I found them in brass (faux gold!) on that famous auction site.
