Crown Tools Marking Gauge, Crown Hand Tools, $46.99

Used to score wood in a straight line parallel to the wood’s edge, this marking gauge is useful for chisel and sawing applications. I found it particularly helpful when learning the tricky skill of making handcut dovetails. Made of rosewood and brass, the craftsmanship in this tool is impeccable and almost heirloom quality.
