Marking Trim – Carpenter’s Tip
Marking Wood – using a pencil or a utility knife
The age old argument between carpenters on marking wood: The Pencil vs. The Utility Knife. Which one do you use?
A simple pencil mark can be confusing. Sometimes the line is slightly curved. Where do you cut? Finish marks should be crisp arrow points. The tip of the arrow is the exact mark. Place an “X” on the waste side of the cut.
