6" Walnut and Maple Try-Square

I got in the shop a little and decided to make my own layout tools, starting with the ever so useful 6" square. Since it's the most used size in my work, it's a good jumping off point. Then I'll create a smaller 3" followed up by a few larger squares. I love how this one feels, and you know what? No more accidental scratching or marring of wood surfaces like you may get with steel squares.

Looks good.  I am going to ask the odd question, why does it have curves at the top?

In my case Gunny I shaped the curves in for style, it just looks cool, but the root of the style is for custom curved profiles in the work you are performing, you can use the profiled end(s) for scribing curves etc into your work.

Here is a great example of that purpose.
