For the discriminating woodworker who appreciates the beauty and craftsmanship of a marking gauge crafted from unique species of select woods, I offer my Limited Edition Marking Gauge series.  These marking gauges have the same design characteristics and specifications as my Rob Cosman marking gauge but the beauty of a unique wood handle

The handle of this marking gauge is crafted from Australian Lacewood also commonly called Southern Silky Oak (Grevillea robusta).  Southern Silky Oak heartwood is a light to medium reddish brown with grey to light brown rays. Exhibits the strongest figure in quarter sawn pieces. Has a fairly coarse texture and straight grain.

Product Details

The second most important tool in cutting dovetails is your marking gauge.  The gauge line becomes part of the finished joint.  Here is why I think my marking gauge will help you cut better dovetails:

  • Using my "drop down technique", results in accurate setting of the board thickness.

  • The blade comes sharp, designed to sever the wood fibers not crush them, leaving a crisp gauge line.

  • The blade is fixed in use but can be rotated to a sharper area when it gets dull.  You can do this several times before having to re-sharpen.

  • Has a large flat on the brass head preventing the gauge from rolling on your bench.

  • The outside of the blade is flat, making for precise work.

  • Has a large knurled locking knob that is easy to tighten.

  • Comes standard with the 1/2" diameter cutter head.  

  • Extra cutter heads available in 3/8", 7/16", and 5/8" diameters.  

  • If you are looking for a less expensive option, see my Rob Cosman Marking gauge or my Cosmanized WoodRiver marking gauge.
