An A-frame level is an ancient tool used for land surveying and leveling. Recently it is being used in permaculture for marking and laying out swells. This A-frame level is unique because it is foldable. This quality makes it easy to store or transport.

Here is the video of how I made it

That is neat. Do you have a use for it? One thing about the video, the music was the same volume as your voice so it was hard to hear.

I am planning to venture into Permaculture and create my first swell and this tool would be used to mark the contour line. In a few words, the permaculture stands for Permanent Agriculture and mostly based on a self-sustaining garden design that utilizes local water resources, even in the desert environment, to store and utilize without additional effort.
