Nice! I’m forever using a piece of string with a nail and pencil. I guess it’s about time I made myself a set of these, among other things. Lots of great ideas on this site. Thanx a lot guys!

I googled woodworking compass and this project came up in the search results. That’s what led me to lumberjocks.
I made a couple of these compasses based on the photos of your project photos and they have worked out great.
