Promoting Woodturning in South Mississippi
This guage is best made with a hardwood about 1/8" thick and 3/4" wide.  The fasteners are available at any big box hardware store.  Drill a 1/4" hole and use four screw fasteners.  Tape all four pieces together when you drill and try to drill in the center of the pieces.  The more accurate the measurments the more accurate the guage
