 Marking Tools
  

Marking tools –


1. Pencils – every shop needs pencils for marking out your designs and
marking wood in order to keep track of jointed surfaces and which piece
fits together where.


2. Knives – these are indispensable in a woodshop for tasks such as marking
tenon shoulders and cutting cardboard templates. Knives are a
preference, pocket knives, box cutters; utility knives with a retractable
blade are all useful in a woodworking shop.


3. Awls – these are sharp, pointed instruments with a variety of uses. They
differ in the fineness of their points and the thickness of their shafts. A
fine-pointed awl is useful for marking out joinery and scribing lines and a
thick-shanked, broad-pointed awl is good for making pilot holes in wood
prior to drilling. The dimple it leaves when tapped with a mallet forms an
exact starting point for a drill bit.
