- Marples Beech Dovetail Marker 1:8
Handmade in Sheffield by Joseph Marples exclusively for Workshop Heaven, this 1:8 dovetail marker is made using beech with a brass face and blued steel blade secured with three brass rivets.
Used for laying out dovetail joinery, the 1:8 ratio produces a more refined and attractive joint than the 1:6. Usually used on harder timbers, the 1:8 is commonly used for feature dovetails – slender London pattern dovetails on drawer fronts, or perhaps the more complex hounds tooth pattern.
Hand finished with peacock oil
