I needed some Calipers

So I made some!

The points meet on all but the one for my tool box. The tool box one passes so I can measure inside as well as outside. The points meeting is perhaps faster to read on a scale, but if you are going by touch, then there is not real difference in precision. So the one that passes is perhaps the most agile.

Osage is pretty wood

The burning is from using a spinning sandpaper disk to half lap and adjust angle.

I probably could have touched up with a scraper to remove the burn and make it look more professional. But my imaginary mentor shook his head, “If it ain’t broke, and it looks good, leave it be.”
