This is the marking gauge I made for G. Matheson in the marking gauge swap. Its made from ambrosia maple and coated with BLO and wax. Hope you enjoy it G. Matheson. Thanks for looking.

Nice, Jeff. That’s a pretty similar style to the one I made. Don’t forget to add the tag gaugeswap so that it shows up with all the other ones.

Thanks Jeff. It’s a great little gauge I can carry around in my apron (or pocket until I get an apron) so I won’t have to look around the shop for a gauge anymore. It fits my hand great and should get lots of use
