I’m sure you’ve all seen those commercially made assembly squares. Most likely from R.
Anyheaux , years a go when I first saw them and they had a super sale, I ended up getting a pair. Of course I never needed to use them but they were there just in case.
Now I’m about to do a major large project and will need at least 10 of these and I was tempted to go and buy a few when the old guilt sit in and I had to remind myself that as a woodworker, If I couldn’t glue and screw two pieces of wood together to make a perfect 90 degree angle, I have no business calling my self a woodworker and owning tools.
So, looking around the shop in the good old scrap bin, I grabbed everything I could find and started cutting with my super obsessively accurate panel sled. That gave me perfect 90-degree cuts to begin with.
And I used 5 minute epoxy for the initial glue ups since I don’t have any patience and living in Houston I didn’t want to spend any more time in the garage than necessary in this heat and humidity. However, just in case the glue skewed things up a little, I ran few of them through the sled to fine tune them back to 90 degree again. And now every one of these squares is 100% accurate. Heck if you measure the ones you buy at you know where some are off by 0.1 degree.
This is the quickest way of making these.
you can never have enough home made Assembly Squares :-)
