I’ve had a hard time drawing lines across some 2×10’s recently. I made my own square out of wood. I don’t know if it will stay true, so this is a test. Please comment if you’ve made an all wooden square and let me know your outcomes. Please subscribe to my YouTube Channel.

I like the square a lot but the editing on the video was very annoying. Being an older guy I kept wanting to adjust the horizontal hold, I hated it when the picture rolled like that on old TV’s and it was just as bad on this video. But, I really like the square.

I made one and it has gone out of square, probably should have used more than oil and wax as a finish. The nice thing, it is easy to square up again. When I find my aluminum flat stock (that I “put up” somewhere) I’ll make another with a metal blade.

And I’m sorry I’m an old grump about such a small thing. By the way, I really like the square. Did I mention how much I like the square? Just playin’ with you.

No worries mantwi. I have thick skin. I take what you’ve said and will learn from it. Thanks for checking it out.
