Here’s the Roubo influenced try squares I made for the latest Lumberjocks swap. They are made of quartersawn bubinga and quartersawn white oak, with brass pins.
As a bonus I threw in some burled walnut tool handles from a batch I recently made. They probably don’t fit the theme…but oh well. I figured my recipient (AirFramer) could make them into screwdrivers, rasp handles, or whatever.
I sure enjoyed making them. I remember taking some pics of the process but I’ll be darned if I can find the pics now. I cut the kerf/slot with the tablesaw….the rest was done with and tools. A big plastic drafting square was used to get them dead square.
I made several of these so I could have some for my shop too. I’ve been using my set for the past month and I really like ‘em. The wood is much lighter and warmer to the hand than a metal square.
These swaps are fun. Peace out, Red
