George Vondriska teaches you about the differences in line quality when you are laying out a joint on your woodworking projects using a cutting gauge and a marking gauge. While the marking gauge employs a short spur to cut a jagged line, the cutting gauge uses a knife wheel that gives you a smooth line without ripping the grain.
