I found those plastic drawing triangles very, very accurate so, instead of buying one of those metal marking triangles..that are changing “moods” according to the season (and from checking them in the shops – not so accurate), I made them from more stable materials like plywood or plastic.
For the base, you can use any man-made board like, plywood, MDF or even “floor panels” because they have very consistent in thickness.
Usually, I use 8 mm (5/16”) floor panels for the big triangles but, for that one on the pics that is 2mm thick, I used 4 mm (5/32”) plywood
After the modification, you can still use the triangle to check for squareness.
And the rest is very simple…
