Well seeing the competition for posting projects may earn money, it’s time I got off my butt. Having finished my Roubo workbench, I tried making a Roubo styled try-square. I didn’t follow any plans, just remembered a few pictures I saw a while back. It’s made from Purple Heart and true Ebony. Sanded to 4000 grit then polished. The Purple Heart is 12" long x 1" wide and 1/8" thick, and the Ebony is 6" long x 1-1/2" wide and 1/2" thick. The fasteners are 2 part epoxy, then 2 Allen head countersunk brass screws. I will be sure to pass it down as an heirloom.
