    Oh my! I'm sure if I had one of those, my dovetails would be much nicer. (I would still mark them with the angle gauge and knife, but having such a beautiful gauge in a prominent place in my shop would be inspirational!)

    Yes, I use a dovetail marker & knife as well to mark the angles. My gauge cuts the baseline and is extremely useful as the baseline is one of the things that can be difficult to keep straight. a bad baseline can ruin an otherwise nice set of dovetails. Here's another cutting gauge I made from Cocobolo.
