Shop Compass Woodworking Plan

from the WOOD Store

Here's a great use for those prized wood scraps you stashed away for just the right project. Our compass incorporates an ingenious clamping system that holds a standard pencil (hexagonal or round) and a hardened pivot point, made from a nail set. Fit your tool with two points, and use it to scribe lines on sheet metal or other hard surfaces.

Legs measure aproximately 11"long.
