This "ultimate" layout square is the prefect tool modification for large projects.
When it comes to working with wide boards or large plywood panels, a framing square is just the right size. The only problem is that the thin, metal body of a framing square can be difficult to hold against the edge of a workpiece. But this “problem” became the inspiration for the project shown in the photo above. The idea was to take an aluminum framing square and turn it into the ultimate layout tool. Now I’ll admit that the result looks a little bit like an over-sized Swiss army knife. But after giving this tool a try in my own shop, it quickly became one of my favorites.
