this could be another good “app” for Steves “I-Wood” plan. :) Sounds logical to me

Doesn’t everybody? It is always easier to find a piece of wood scrap as I’m working at the bench, than a piece of paper. I even doodle on the poor bench top too. Isn’t it nice how renewable our resources are. Afterwards I can sand and reuse!

Donna I had done it on occasions but I never thought about using a board all the time and the wind blowing never crossed my mind either.

I have a 12” hunk of 2×4 I have been using to hold measurements for years.. I ought to upgrade to this method! More room for sketches.

Paper works great for me. I have a large stack of 5×7 tablets I bought years ago for a few dollars and keep them in several locations in my shop. The only wind in my shop is the ceiling fans so they don’t blow away. The used paper makes good kindling for the burn pile.

I always wrote the measurement on whatever I had to cut, sees to it I’m always cutting the right piece to the right size.

Am I the only one who uses a spiral notebook of graph paper or a clipboard?

Scrapwood doesn’t feed very well in my printer when printing out sketchup drawings.
