Wari Kebiki / Japanese Cutting Gauge | DIY Woodworking Tools



I made my version of Wari kebiki! I wanted this one but I doubted my fabrication skill and hesitated making it.
Though I may still need minor adjustments, it works at the accuracy level I need (I anyway hand-plane the cutting edge of the stips so).

I’m excited that now I can use this Wari Kebiki instead of a Japanese marking gauge to cut Kumiko Strips!

Tsunesaburo is a good brand!
