Get the Most Out of Your Framing Square

Framing squares are profoundly underappreciated. A framing square is the right tool for a whole bunch of jobs. They’re a classic and essential tool that have been around for hundreds of years, and most likely will stay on the jobsite for hundreds more. But not enough carpenters don’t know how to properly use one. Speed squares are handy, but they just can’t do everything that a full framing square can. In this video Essential Craftsman shows how to get the most out of both your framing square and your speed square.

Essential Craftsman videos feature Scott Wadsworth. Scott started working as a craftsman in 1974. His career has encompassed logging, saw milling, guiding elk hunters, production framing, commercial concrete, steel fabrication, blacksmithing, and every aspect of residential carpentry and contracting. Scott has been married to his high school sweetheart Kelly Comerford for 39 years. They have four children and ten grandchildren. His son Nate handles the video production and whip-cracking side of Essential Craftsman.
