Any angle can easily be created with a carpenters square and a straight board as indicated in the figure and table above. The table is generic and can be used for all types of length units. 

Example - Alpha angle 22 degrees, units on carpenters square in cm

Form the table above:

A = 1

B = 0.404

C = 1.079

If the units on the carpenters square is cm and the length of the sides of the square is 50 cm - the most exact angle can be made by multiplying these values with 50:

A = 1 (50 cm)

   = 50 cm

B = 0.404 (50 cm)

   = 20.2 cm

C = 1.079 (50 cm)

   = 53.92 cm
