Compass Layout Tricks from October 2013 Issue
In the October 2013 issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine, you’ll find my Woodworking Essentials article, “The Mighty Compass.” In the article I show a bunch of things you can do with a compass to create polygons and divide lines and angles. The following video shows some of the layout techniques from the article, in case you learn better by seeing than by reading.
I’ve also received a number of questions about the compass I used in the article. It’s available from Lee Valley at this link.
