Just a simple project for this morning that I made it from scrap 1/2” BB Ply. I got the idea from an article in one of the woodworking mags, I believe it was FWW. In that article, the author used acrylic for his squares but I didn’t want to go through all of that hence the BB Ply. Also, I used BB because I hate try squares. They always seem to be too big or two small. This one is has a 12” blade and an 8” handle, both 2-1/2” wide. In hind sight, I probably could have made both a little narrower but the large size is nice to hold on to but it just looks a tad ‘off.’
Does anyone know how much BB Ply “moves” with the changes is humidity? I figured that plywood was less susceptible to movement over solid wood but I don’t know that for certain.
