Nice work, nice gauge.

A homemade marking gauge is on my list of to-dos, but I always get hung up on what to use for the “marking” part—is that a finish nail that I see? How does that work for you—is it sufficiently sharp across grain?

Also—it adjusts by a friction-fit wedge—is that right?

Have your say...
