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.

JimThe 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

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

Hi MCI 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.
