needed a small precision level so i made one. the body is made from 5/4 cherry and the vial is an old brass line level. it is precision because it is adjustable and therefore can be calibrated.

Looks real nice. Did you calibrate it with a non-precision level?, or do you have two of these?

Calibration procedure:1. set level on flat but not level surface 2. note position of the bubble 3. flip level around so that each end is in the previous position of the other4. note position of the bubble 5. take half the difference of the two positions of the bubble 6. adjust vial so that the bubble moves that distance toward its former position7. repeat steps 2-6 until the bubble reads the same in either position8. double check on another unlevel surface to confirm that the bubble reads the same in both directions
