6" Cherry Marking Gauge

$70.00

Wild Black Cherry - this is the wood we used for our first gauge. It is our top seller by far. The finish is attained by ammonia fuming and a hand rubbed oil/varnish which brings out the beautiful grain patterns from quarter sawn to flat sawn lumber. The darkening of aged cherry makes this tool more beautiful everyday.

6" Cherry Marking Gauge

5/5
I love this guage. It is made with amazing craft, and is a work of art in itself. I bought this after cutting myself with a veritas wheel type guage and I find this one so much safer and easier to control. I never seem to need anything marked over six inches for joinery, but now I'm eying a panel guage.

Great Product - True Craftsmanship

5/5
I purchased this marking gage, as I needed one for Marc Adam's Joinery Class and this is what he recommended. When I got it in the mail, I was surprised just how truly great the craftsmanship is on this. I would definitely recommend this, as it will be something you can proudly pass down to future generations of woodworkers.

Graceful and functional tool

5/5
This tool is not only a beautiful work of art but it is very well made and functions perfectly. I have used it on hard maple and black walnut and it cut clean, crisp lines without a lot of effort. I bought the one in cherry, and now I'm considering getting one in African Blackwood just for the joy of owning one of these fine tools. Worth every penny you will spend.

Beauty unites with function

5/5
This is a lovely tool: right from the box, it cut a deep, clean, straight, clear line in a tricky piece of tiger maple. It fits the hand well, is elegantly designed, and its wide but shallow fence makes it simple to mark a piece resting on -- not hanging over -- the bench. Its blade is cambered and beveled, and those extra touches making it cut really smoothly in both directions, and with and across the grain. I'm a lefty, and the tool is working perfectly for me -- that's not always the case! And doing business with Jeff has been a pleasure too. He sent courteous, prompt notes to let me know of the status of the order, and added a handwritten wish that I'd like the tool on the order slip. Everything about my first experience with Hamilton tools has been rewarding. I hope this artisan flourishes!

Excellent Quality Tool

5/5
Not only is the 6" cherry gauge beautiful, it fits your hand perfectly and cuts clean and smooth with and across grain. I saw this tool at the 2011 WIA and glad I did.

Beautifully made marking tool

5/5
The cherry that Jeff Hamilton uses to make these tools is gorgeous. The tool itself is exquisitely made, with flawless fit and a smooth finish. The design makes it possible to mark 3/4" wood lying flat on my workbench. The tool arrived packed in cherry shavings; nice touch! Thanks for a great tool.
