How to Make a Marking Guage

February 24, 2014

Description:

This week I made this marking gauge for my workshop. It is made out of some maple scrap wood I had laying around the shop. First I cut out the long piece, which is 12″ long and around 3/4″ x 3/4″ wide. I rounded over the edges on my router table and then I started cutting out the square piece. After that, I cut out the center for the long piece to go and rounded over the outside of the square. Once the square was cut out, I drilled a hole in the top for the bolt to lock the gauge in place. In order for the gauge to make a mark, I screwed in a small screw at one end of the rod. From here, I threaded the hand bolt into the piece and called it quits. I don’t really use a marking gauge that much in my shop, but when I do, it will come in handy!
