Customising Tools for Lowfat Roubo

Updated: Mar 21

One of our first jobs was to add a logo to marking gauges for Derek at Lowfat Roubo.



Perfecting the designDerek had a logo and wanted to add it to his finely crafted hardwood marking gauges. We redrew the design in a CAD program and matched his chosen typeface. We wanted to ensure the logo was crisp and readable on the hard, end grain of the wood, so we tested a several sizes and depths.


After creating a jig to hold the pieces in place, we laser engraved 4 of the hardwood blocks and sent over to Derek to check that he was happy with the quality. We then engraved a full batch of gauges ready to be assembled and shipped with their new Lowfat Roubo insignia.
