An Elegant Bevel Gauge

Over at Dan’s Shop is an article describing a bevel gauge. This is a simple enough tool that has fixed angles for 90, 60. 45 and 30 degrees. The lines are simple and the layout is simple. Better yet, these are the angles that I tend to use most. I will definitely be making one of these fairly soon!

While  looking around Some of Dan’s Back Articles,  I have developed a pretty strong admiration for this guy.  His ethics are sound, he sticks to using hand tools, he records the hand tools he used for a project, and his panel gauge is one of the prettiest I have ever seen.

Dan has done some pretty good research into the question, “What is the ideal tool set?”

I will be taking notes.
