Roubo Try Squares

Took a break from working on my Roubo Workbench, made these from Red Oak, Maple and Oak Plugs. Finish is one coat of Tung Oil.

Thanks guys, these are very easy to make and they make great gifts.
There is an article from the Feb 2010 Popular WW Mag that shows how to make them. I used to make these all by hand tools, but these two. I used the bandsaw to rip the handles and blades to width. Then used the bandsaw to cut the kerf lines in the handle, the rest of the work was completed using hand tools.
Give it a try, I am sure you will have fun.
