Workshop Tips: Depth gauge for carved chair seats
When sculpting the seat of a rocking chair, I came up with this simple jig for gauging depth and symmetry. It’s a piece of scrap, with dowels inserted every 2 in. and marked in 1⁄4-in. increments. As I worked with my grinder to shape the seat, the jig guided me to perfect results.
