Introduction: Woodworking Marker Gauge

Made this marking gauge out of a reclaimed hardwood real-estate sign and scraps of brass and other bits I had lying around.

    you could also go to your local sewing center and pick up an exacto clothing sheer blade. they are cheap sharp and ready to use. got mine at the local walmart for the wife. found new purpose for it. sometimes it pays to go shopping with the wife.

    Thanks! The marking wheel was a steel washer, ground to a tapered point profile, then case hardened.

    It's a beautiful marking gauge that you made. Just so that you're aware, Instructables is running a Wood Contest right now where you can share skills as well as projects. If you combined your work to show not only how you made the marking gauge, but, how one uses a marking gauge, you'd have one heck of an entry for the judges prize which focuses specifically woodworking skills and techniques rather than the built project itself.

    Nice work anyhow!

    Not all Instrucables are step by step instructions. One of the options when you create one is simply to share photos of a project with others.

    pretty... where are the instructions? this is "instructables" after all.

    And while I'd love to see a "step by step" the "slideshow" is acceptable. I can look at these pictures and get the basic gist of how to make one of these.
