I make tools as I go according to what I need at the time. I made these from some scrap from a bookcase project.

Great use for scrap! Not to mention the savings in buying new. Keep up the good work.

Very nice! What did you use for the pins in the square?

Thank you everyone.
The pins are just hardware store dowels.

I do the same thing when it comes to making some tools. Yours are wonderful, I really envy the panel gauge which is something I need but haven’t made yet.

What a great way to use up those scraps. It’s projects like these that cause most of us to hang on to every piece of wood we have. Thanks for the post.
