Finding a Corner Radius
I often need to make a nice, rounded corner on a workpiece. But this can often lead to a lot of trial and error until I get the corner radius just right.
You'll find a carpenter's square and a compass makes this task quick and easy. And the results are perfect every time.
For example, I needed a 4" radius at the corner. So I lined up the edge and
end of the workpiece with the 4" mark on the outside of both legs of the square (see photo below). Then mark the point of the square. Finally, put the pointed arm of the compass on this mark, extend the compass to the edge of the workpiece, and scribe the line.
