1940s/1960s hand made, wood craftsman, woodworker and joiner' Marking Guage
I LOVE WOOD
I LOVE CARPENTERS HAND MADE WOODEN TOOLS EVEN BETTER & this is a superb example!
Here we have on offer, a Carpenters hand made Wooden Scribe for making straight line along lengths of wood.
Each of the three wooden parts are hand made and fit beautifully together.
The patena is lovely and as with most old wood, is lovely, smooth and warm to hold in ones hand.
I am no wood expert, but I know scribes are generally made from boxwood. This one however, looks to be made from oak which has been stained but the wedge has a totally different grain and could well be boxwood.
I couldn't leave the wood dull and drying out so, to prevent cracking, I have lovingly applyied a small amount of genuine beeswax polish.
The pin, which acts as the scribe point, is sharp and as firm in the wood as the day it was made.
I've included lots of photographs which, I hope, shows off how good this woodworker's scribe really is!
If you would like further photographs, please ask and we will happily supply.

Returns & exchanges
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final unless goods prove to be not as described. Photographs of the item form an integral part of the item description. Please read the descriptions & check out the photographs very carefully before placing your order! If you would like further photographs, please let me know.
FlyingSheepAntiques sells vintage and antique items and collectables which are typically 25 - 200 years old. They are generally used, reclaimed, and/or previously worn items. They are therefore unlikely to be in perfect, mint condition.
We endeavour to describe each item completely and honestly.
We list defects and issues with an item as well as its virtues.
We include photographs which form an integral part of the item description.
The best idea is to raise queries before buying!
If you would like additional photographs, please ask before you buy.
We will happily exchange or refund the purchase price of an item (including original and return shipping costs) where it is shown that the item description, including the photographs, is incorrect.
We pack every item very carefully, perhaps a bit excessively at times, because we want the item to arrive in the condition it left us. However, if you decide not to opt for Postal Insurance and a Tracked/Signed for services, we will not be held liable for any loss or damage which occurs in transit.
