I’ve been working on building a Roubo try square that was in an article by Christopher Schwarz. I saw the layout square in the new magazine and it referenced this one. I went ahead and picked up the plans which helped a bunch on a few of the details. Here is the progress so far. The material is cherry, 3/4” handle, 1/4” blade resawn with my diston rip saw. Everything was done with hand tools and all that is left is to make some dowels with my homemade doweling plate and peg the joint, then finish the wood. It was a pretty quick project and was easy to get square with a little tweaking after glue up.
