Marking out the wood.

The marking out of the materials took part in two sections, first the wood was marked out and shaped, then the plastic was marked out and made. To mark out the wood to form the chamfer the marking gauge was used.
A distance of 10mm was set up on the rule and this was then marked on all sides. This section of the wood now has to be removed, this was done with the plane which gives a very smooth finish and the use of sandpaper should be kept to a minimum. Note the finish on the wood and the quality of the varnish, and the finish of the plastic.

If you were unable to use the marking gauge the pencil or marking knife and the try square were used.

The marking onto the wood was done either with a pencil or a marking knife. During the marking out process it is a good idea to hold the wood in the vice
