« Part 2: Marking Gauges Part 3 of Marking Gauges series no next part

I ripped two long strips of walnut and the rounded them with a spoke shave. The spoke shave really works fast. It is the first time I have used one on hardwood. The veritas one I have is great!!

Now I’m chopping the wedge mortise one #5.

You can’t reall see it but there is a retangular hole in the side of the gague.

The round waste dowel is to minimize blow out as the mortise is chopped.

Thank you for the encouragement. I really appreciate it. Due to my posting errors #2 got before #1 so it is out of order but ….. I’m learing.
