The first woodworking class last night was fun, though there was plenty of administravia to attend to, so we didn’t do nearly as much chisel sharpening as I would’ve liked. I got all but one of the tools I need for the class – the outstanding tool is a marking/cutting gage, and I’m thinking of just making my own. We’ll see how it goes.

While browsing the ‘net reading about marking gages, I came upon this gem of a description of a marking gage patent:

There are good ideas, there are not-so-good ideas, there are really bad ideas, and then there’s this thing.

It is pretty funny looking.
