Saddle squares make it easy to carry a layout line around from the edge to the face of a workpiece. I have the veritas aluminum saddle square and use it a lot.

Excellent work. Did you make the decorative cuts by hand? I like how they can hinge.

Nice squares. +1 on how you did the decorative cuts.
