Thanks to all))) Try square and gauge similar 18th century models. I have a dream to make a decorated tool... May be some chip carving on the gauge

Wow, you have all made some very nice tools! Really puts my shop built stuff to shame!

I do have a mallet I just finished, and it's a big-'ol mallet too. I still need to work on the finish some, but it's all there.
I'm finishing up a marking gauge as well, just need to apply some finish to that as well.

I'll post some pics once their done, although I do want to say I'm not really happy with the way they turned out. I will be making a second marking gauge, fixing my mistakes and improving on what I have learned. The mallet is OK, but like I said, it's a really big mallet so it has limited uses.
I plan to make a few more mallets as well, the next will be smaller with angled faces, and once my rough Beech blank finishes drying I plan to turn a round carving mallet as well.

Again, you all have truly made some very nice tools, and I will admit, I'm a bit jealous too.
I think I may need to look into one of those saw kits!

$4 marking gauge... Just for S's & G's

The marking gauge I use has a wheel and I gotta say this pin thing on the one I made sucks. Wanders all over the board. All the same though it's a mock-up for a Cocobolo one... A lot learned and a lot to change!

My 6 year old son would have loved to have that to complement his Thor costume this past halloween. That mallet is sure pretty...

I found that same problem with the Marking Gage I made. I converted it to use an Exacto blade. The blade tracks much better.
