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 standard marking gauge but the beauty of a unique wood handle

This marking gauge is crafted from Zebrawood.  Zebrawood (Microberlinia brazzavillensis) is an exotic wood from West Africa.   The heartwood is a light brown or cream color with dark blackish brown streaks vaguely resembling a zebra’s stripes. The stripes can be either chaotic and wavy (flatsawn), or somewhat uniform (quartersawn).  Has a fairly coarse texture and open pores. Grain is usually wavy or interlocked.

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 resharpen.

  • 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 inch diameter cutter head.  

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

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