    Marking Gage

    Marking Gage-img_1583.jpgMarking Gage-img_1579.jpg

    Here is a hand made Wooden Marking Gage and Cabinet Scraper made by my dad. I believe the wood he used here is used is "Bubinga". He made several wooden hand tools after he retired and gave these to his children before he passed away in 2003. He was a toolmaker by trade, but his skills carried over into woodworking as well and the quality of his work shows through. I thought others might like to see his work on display on this forum.
    Enjoy!Marking Gage-img_1581-1-.jpgMarking Gage-img_1584-1-.jpg
