I made this marking gauge for the LJ 2013 Gauge swap. Sent it off to Lake Lover. The wood is Macassar ebony. the round cutter is a replacement cutter from Lee Valley. The steel rod I got from McMaster Carr. It was a nice little project and one that I hope Lake Lover finds useful.

Ebony. I thought it was Walnut.

I have used it and it works just fine. You did a great job machineing it, the fit is perfect. Thanks Bondo.

The box is very nice also.

My wife wondered what I got in the mail, so she watched me unwrap it, as I explained the tool swap.

She was also very impressed with it and thought the tool swap was a great idea.

Excellent work, Bondo. You hit this one out of the park! The ebony and the brass make a wonderful couple.
