Sizing up project parts
Marking knives help you precisely transfer measurements when marking parts to size. For example, marking a piece of solid-wood edging to match a veneered panel, as shown right, gives you an exact fit. You can do this with any project part that must be cut to fit an existing opening or when making story sticks, templates used for marking and transferring measurements.
After scoring the pin-socket depth with a marking gauge, use a knife to define the tails.
Use your already-cut tail board to now mark the locations for the mating pins.
