This marking Gauge was made from brazilian jatoba, the finishing is just polished.

Nice marking gauge. I like the sliding dovetail.

Nice work !
So would this doorstop I made a few years ago from a Brazilian
pallet be Jatoba do you think ?

The pallet was for sheet granite used at a countertop shop my son worked at.

This looks great! I’d like to make a similar panel gauge. Thanks for the inspiration.
