Hello fellow LJers…
Lately, I have I have been making my own layout, measuring and leveling tools to take my woodworking to a whole new level (no pun intended). I have knocked out quite a bit from my “Wish-List”, but now I want to make 3 levels. I want a 6’, 4’ and 2’ level (possibly a torpedo level as well), but here is the kicker…I want to make them out of wood.
I am reaching out to this network and its plethora of knowledge. My question is what wood should I use? Obviously I would need something that is hard and durable. I wouldn’t mind something with a nice grain though. My first thought was Teak, but I figured I would reach out to everyone here first and seek advice.
Second question is, where would be a good place to order or purchase the wood suggested?
Has anyone ever made or had experience with wooden levels before?
