The layout square is the predecessor tot he carpenter’s square as we know it today and this simple design goes back pre-history. They are found in every culture and time. almost all built the same way just different decorations and sizes to match the culture and use. we decided to make this out of Maple and walnut as it is a bit cliche but still a strong contrast! this can be built in a long afternoon and if treated well can last the rest of your life. it is also a fantastic learning exercise as you get to play with two different joints and a few simple angles. Then you can do whatever you want to the finished look.
