Sample Block Arrangement using Lazy Angle Blocks only
After mastering the Lazy ANgle block, add a twist or two and make the Lazy Angle Two Step and Four Step blocks. They are easy to make and work with the Lazy ANgle blocks. To make these blocks, first make the Lazy Angle block, then use the Lazy Angle™ Ruler to re-cut the block and add anotehr "B" piece. All pieces for these blocks are cut using the Lazy Angle™ Ruler. For the Four Step blocks, make the Two Step blocks and re-cut two more times, adding more "B" pieces where needed.
Rectangles: The ruler makes two rectangles too.
