This is the Marking Gauge I made for CosmicSniper in the latest Shopmade Tool Swap.

Made from Padauk, Cherry and Brass. I have never made one of these before.. hell I have never used one so I was pretty nervous about the build. Add to that the fact that I was a bit rushed with the fit and finish due to my sons early arrival into this world I am actually pretty pleased with the result.

The blade is an old Stanley 110 blade cut and reshaped, sharpened and honed. I hope he liked it and gets some use out of it.

I had a lot of fun in this swap and hope to participate in more!

Thanks for looking!

Nice looking marking gauge. I like the contrast in the wood you chose.

Congratulations on your son!

Fancy gauge Eric. I like all the brass accents and it looks like it should work as good as it looks.

Thanks again guys.

Brandon – it was kinda a compromise between the wheel type blade and the straight blade. This way it works being pushed or pulled without fussing with a blade re position. It actually works pretty good from my R&D marks I made with it.
