Handmade Maple Marking tool

by Lambdafarm on October 2, 2010

I am a lousy carpenter.  I am not much of a joiner, either.  However, I came across a book on making your own tools to do joinery and made the tools.  I am working on learning to use hand tools to make boxes and things that I can inlay.  This is a marking tool, used to scribe a line in the wood as a place to cut with a handsaw.  I actually made two, one of wenge an purple heart and one of maple.  The former is prettier, the latter more historically correct.
