    Dauer: 5:25

    Making a simple, but accurate center finder from scraps of laminate flooring. It will be used mostly for woodturning, to mark the center of blanks.
    Laminate flooring is a great material for workshop projects since it's basically MDF covered in melamine on both sides.
    I used the factory edges to get an accurate square then used it's diagonal to mark the 45 degree angle for the ruler. The ruler itself is a piece of leftover aluminum transition strip.

@Hornet S I tried counting the number of people that care about your "Professional" opinion... I am still waiting for a single person to raise their hand... People can use their tools however they want. If he wants to use a caliper to mark a line, a level to strike a straight line or even a chisel to open a can of paint, that is his prerogative... Who fucking cares how someone else uses their own property... Did he say "Hey, you, professional jackass. Use your tools exactly like I do and no matter how you are doing it, you are wrong and you must do it this way" ... no he used his tools to do whatever the fuck he wants to show off how he made and nice tool for his shop... fuck off...

It's an attachment for the mini lathe. Basically a shaft with the blade on it, running between centers. Then I built a table on top of it. I'll make a video of it, since many people asked.
