I just took some hard maple left over from my easel project and ripped them to 3/8 thick and then carefully grooved out the thickness of the framing square. Mixed up 2 part epoxy, glued, scrapped, planed and trued it to the long side with variety of planes files scrapers. Now I have 24” long tri-square that is much more accurate then the framer was before. Did the double line test and came out exactly parallel.
