Timber Frame Layout Squares

The goal was simple: create a layout square that increases accuracy, decreases time, and makes the process more enjoyable.  This square incorporates the features of a framing square, try square, and protractor all wrapped into one. The square has 1/16-in. scale with laser etched markings designed for easy reading.  Pivot off one corner of the base to get the plumb cut angles, seat cut, and any angles for compound joinery.  Flip it over and get the opposing angles. It also makes peg layout a snap.  The offset base aids in reference edge layout with graduation slots every 1/2 inch with notches on edges to mark every 1/4 inch.
