Measuring and Marking

Measuring and marking-out is a key part of any practical project. Planning for this will help ensure the success of the project and reduce the chance of mistakes and waste.

The aim is to prepare the materials you are working with for the next stages of the production process. Failure to carry this out on materials properly can lead to joints that do not match up or are incorrectly aligned and connected.

There are several key points to measuring and marking out correctly:-

  • reading dimensions from sketches or drawings correctly
  • choosing appropriate tools for your task and material
  • using tools correctly and accurately
  • checking over your work to ensure it is accurate
