I was looking for a geometric construction to divide a line into N equal segments. Not that I cannot measure it, but I find that it always comes out a little more accurate when I use a geometric construction technique to get the answer.
Since we as woodworkers deal with a lot of geometric problems, I thought I would post this as it might be really useful to a lot of us. The table of contents for geometric construction is this link.
One good thing about this is that it shows an animated version of the construction so you can see it being done. Should work wonders in the shop.
Hope this helps other as much as it has helped me just today.
