Fun with a Framing Square

Question of the day: What's the difference between a framing square and a carpenter's square? I'll give you a hint, as a home woodworker you'll want a framing square. There are lots of obvious uses like checking to see if one surface is square to another. But, in this video, Carol Beronich, assistant editor at Woodsmith, shows you how to draw circles, draw octagons, and figure board feet. Note: Carol also answers the question above, but you'll have to stay with the video for about four minutes to find out.
