Layout woodworking Dovetail Joints in style, with this Brass and Tool Steel Dovetail Marker. Made individually by hand using the same techniques as infill plane makers, I strive to make these both beautiful and practical, to inspire you in your work. Included angles are clearly engraved and colour filled. The squared steel top is long enough to mark two 3/4" boards at once, and the brass face is canted slightly inwards, so that errant fibres do not interfere with accurate registration. Custom made to order with a layout angle of your choosing.
This dovetail marker is made very well and has a great heft to it. It also works well as a saddle square for carrying your lines across 2 boards for gang cutting. If you cut a lot of dovetails and enjoy using hand-made tools from people who pay that extra attention to detail, this marker is worth every penny!

This tool feels great in hand. Well balanced and with a bevelled edge on the non marking side it feels very refined. It saddles evenly over the work and makes for an accurate reference. It's a must have layout tool.
