Marking Gauges

These are an 18th century French design.  These are a couple of years old, a very simple robust design. It was one of the first hand-tool-only projects that I did.  When I made them I did not have very many tools.

These don’t look like much, but they are my mortice marking gauges.  The one that says “PIG” (top, darker)  is for a “pig sticker chisel”.  These were used to mark out all of the mortices on the joined stools.
