I didn’t buy these vintage wooden T-squares and ruler because I thought they’d be super practical* (the ruler is in inches!), but rather because I thought that as a collection they looked really beautiful! I can see them hanging on the wall of some architect or draftsman’s office – actually I think they’d work well in any designer’s space. We haven’t sanded the wood as we wanted to retain the history of the pieces, but if the state of the wood bothered you, you could always give it a light rub with some steel wool, and a fresh coat of varnish – personally though I think a bit of wood oil will suffice.
A character-filled trio that will make for a great wall display!
Dimensions: Arced ruler – 114cm long x 5cm wide; Longer T-square – 87.5cm long x 24cm wide; ShorterT-square – 71.5cm long x 28cm wide
* While we bought the collection for display purposes only, Justin did have a quick look a the T-squares and seemed to think they could still be used
