The local Masonic Lodge needed a six inch logo in red oak. I originally thought about simply cutting it out of a 1/4” to 3/8” piece of stock. After I laid it out on the wood, the grain was running the wrong direction on the square and overall it looked very amateurish. I made it three dimensional. The divider has five pieces: two arms, two raised embelishments and one screw head (a flattened 3/8” screw hole button with a bandsaw kerf). The square is four pieces with scroll saw kerfs to define the graduations. All pieces are glued to a 1/8 ” baltic birch backer cut slightly smalller.

Looks good sugarpine.
I think I’ve seen that somewhere in my travels.

I’m glad that you saw the “Light” and decided to use solid stock instead of plywood.
