Japanese beam compass

It's made by gluing a small 6mm piece in-between...
.50 cents for a plastic one at any dollar or school supplies store, but where is the fun in that. I used a 1 foot piece of a 1×2 to make this. Cut it in half to make 2 6 inch peices then cut 1 6 in in half longways, making 1 6 inch peice still 1×2 and the other 2 peices 1×1 that are 6 inches...
