Nothing special. Just trying to document stuff I’m doing. I needed a small machinist type square. It’s not “machinist” quality but it’s square to my embarrassingly expensive $100 Woodpeckers T-Square so it’s good enough for government work and me. It’s exactly 4.00” on both sides.

Made by cutting a TS kerf and a shim using epoxy then drilling 2 pins (finish nails) to lock it in. Finished with Danish oil.

I think I’ll work on making a matching set 3,4,5 & 6 inches. They’re cheap enough at HF and Amazon but I like the scrap spalted wood.

Well done. I like that people make and modify the things in the shop to do what they need!
