I finally finished these up after a short break. The last little bit was completed in short 5 minute bursts during periodic breaks in diaper changes and feedings (i.e. late night time in the shop).
I wanted a pair of dovetail layout dividers and for some unknown reason I decided to make a pair instead of buying a set. I am happy I decided to do that as these came out WAY beyond what I was expecting to come out of my shop lol. Made from cherry and padauk with infilled brass set screw and fine tuning nut and a copper rivet. The finish is 9 coats of 3-2-1 with paste wax to top it off.
This project had a lot of firsts in it for me and I learned a lot doing it. Next I want to make a pencil compass to match this guy.. stay tuned for that adventure lol.
More details and build pics can be found in My Handtool Blog
