Giant compass

I made this compass today.

It's a big one.

It's quite simple. 2 pieces of wood. Drill a hole in one leg to hold a pencil.

Make a hole in the other leg, saw the top off a screw and screw it in the hole head first.

The legs are held together by 2 thin pieces of scrap wood.

Fix those really well on one leg and use a butterfly screw to hold the other leg.

It's not exactly rocket science but it's better than using a string or something like that.
