Center Finder Woodworking Plan

from the WOOD Store

Another fine homemade tool from the WOOD' magazine shop.

WOOD magazine's editors, love the challenge of building usable yet impressive-looking hand tools for our shop. For this walnut-and-brass center finder we wanted the tool to look distinctive, feel comfortable, and be small enough to fit in a shop apron. This tool meets Our criteria, and it's terrific for locating the center of dowels and other round stock, too.

Measures approximately 12"long.
