Essential Marking And Cutting Tips

Marking boards is something that a carpenter does nearly every day without fail. In this video Scott Wadsworth shares the four marking tools he finds essential: a Sharpie, a lumber crayon, a number two pencil, and a carpenter’s pencil. Each marking tool is ultimately interchangeable but shines when used for specific tasks. Scott also shares some pro tips that include clever, outside the box uses for marking tools.
