Japanese cutting gauge
Here first the drawing I made to build it after.
This post comes from my Japanese cutting gauge .
Yet another tool for my Japanese toolbox.
The cutting gauge is traditionally used to separate and split wood.
I decided that on the day of New Year’s Eve I needed to make and finish a little wood project that would make me smile.
1. The cutting gauge.
2. marking and making the body.
3. Sawing of the body from the board.
5. Shaping the body.
6. Using the wonderful kiri drill.
Hope this can bring some inspiration to others that play with Japanese tools and work methods, who knows maybe a new year’s wish.
