A little project that I made from small scraps of plywood glued together, a small piece of some dark wood (probably teak), a nail and a washer, sharpened like John ‘ibuildit’ Heisz did in his video:
Fun to make and works even better than I expected.

Thank you for the link Wimpi, I see you made yours special to you with that quick clamp method. Very nice
looking marking gauge, that will be easy to make and use. Thank you for sharing.
