This hand-crafted panel gauge is used to accurately mark lines
parallel to an edge — a fundamental operation in laying-out fine furniture.
Solid Khaya (African) mahogany and brass with shellac finish. 11″ W
× 28″ D × 3″ H.
A pencil or knife blade at the end of the gauge arm is used to mark a line parallel to the gauge body.
The gauge arm provides over 24 inches of adjustment relative to the gauge body.
Inlaid brass allows the gauge arm to be secured without damaging the African Mahogany wood.
Hand-applied shellac provides an elegant finish that is satisfying to the touch.
Brass protects the gauge body where it is referenced against the edge of a panel.
