Essential tools

Besides a good tape measure, these are a couple tools that are proving to be indispensable. The dial caliper I use measures in fractions of an inch in 64ths. It comes in handy for thicknessing stock, measuring grooves , and the depth of mortises. The other tool is a marking gauge and is good for laying out grooves ,the outlines of mortises, center lines, and finding one with a micro-adjust feature makes for precise layout.
