I made these walnut and maple wooden try squares discussed in the excellent book, Tool-Making Projects for Joinery and Woodworking, by Steve A. Olesin. I highly recommend the book. I’m having great fun following along in his footsteps and learning a lot.
The third picture shows their accuracy; they are not perfect, but are close. I used the flip-test, where you draw a line, flip the square the other way, and draw a line right next to it to show the discrepancy in it’s angle. Close enough for my aboriginal skills! In my woodworking it’s not the square that is the problem!
