Woodworker: Michael Wollowski

Wollowski used an early version of this panel gauge, which is basically an oversize marking gauge, while building a blanket chest. But he had difficulty controlling the scoring knife on that version, so he modified the design to include a handle that allows him to put pressure directly over the blade, providing more control with less wobble. Wollowski’s panel gauge is made of beech and is finished with linseed oil and wax.
