This video is the first in my posting and it explains how I went about building a wooden square, woods used are maple, oak, and sapele. For diy squares they don’t do a bad job, they are almost perfect and they have a 300mm bar so over that distance you expect a small amount of deflection. Plans are available please feel free toenail me at Chad@everythingwood.me

Great project! I would find an alternative method when ripping on table saw. Putting your hand passed the blade is very dangerous. I would like you to keep your fingers for a long time. The safety comment I had to make. It is the shop teacher in me so do not take it the wrong way.

Thanks Woodmaster1 yes i understand your concern my fence is slightly out of parallel and needs adjustment. I will do that very soon so I can keep all 10 fingers haha.

a ZCI would add some safety to your saw.
You have a very dangerous way of using you saw, fingers very close to the blade. How would you feel without a few fingers?

Nice project. Hopefully after selling some of your projects you can purchase a better table saw. Many contractor saws are not very accurate and can be dangerous.
