Creation of Adam - setting in

Setting In - keeping it square: 
I have been setting in the sides of the hands. That means I've carved the edges of the hands to make a 90 degree angle with the top surface (and with the base). The tool I used to guide me is an adjustable combination square, because my try square is too long to fit without hitting against the base.
Then when I start carving downwards (bosting in), the hands will not lose their outer shape.
