My entry for this year’s Marking and Measuring Tool Swap was a wooden square; made of laminated sections of Osage Orange and Ziricote; and pinned with black Micarta pins. My gift was sent to my LJ buddy, TerryD!
I used the ‘planer trick’ to thin pieces of Osage and Ziricote before gluing up (my thin stock was attached to the 3/4” birch ply with carpet tape, then fed into the power planer).
Even got a chance to use my own wooden square to check Terry’s while in the clamps…would you stick YOUR Bridge City square in there? LOL
For a bonus gift, I turned a marking knife from Ziricote and added a Pfeil blade and brass ferrule. Terry now has a marking knife that matches mine almost exactly! (see photo 5)
I also added one of my small flint knives to the package for special luck. The blade is knapped from Blue Mountain Jasper and the handle is from spalted Mango.
Hope they all bring you luck and good health, Terry.
