I needed a center finder, so I made one :)

The wood is walnut.
The brass is cut from 1×10 mm strip.

It’s dead accurate, so very usefull
Altough I could pay more attention to some details.

Little explanation how to use:

Thanks for watching.

Very nice tool. Professional looking, professional quality. Certainly beats the plastic versions I have seen.
