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  

You are buying the actual marking gauge pictured on this page so you can see exactly what it looks like.   Once this gauge is sold - it is gone. 

The handle of this marking gauge is crafted from Ziricote (Cordia dodecandra).  Grown in Central America and Mexico, it's color ranges from medium to dark brown, sometimes with either a green or purple hue, with darker bands of black growth rings intermixed. Ziricote has a very unique appearance, which is sometimes referred to as “spider-webbing” or “landscape” grain figure. 

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 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, you can see my "Cosmanized" WoodRiver marking gauge or my Rob Cosman Marking Gauge.
