Bevel gauge

by Lambdafarm on October 6, 2010

A bevel gauge is used to transfer angles from one workpiece to another.  Handmade items are rarely exactly 45 degrees, for example, but may be 44 or 46.  If you are replacing of a pair of pieces and need to replicate that angle exactly, you use this gauge.  Mine is made of lacewood and bird’s eye maple.
