|Measuring and Scribing - Course: Manual Woodworking Techniques. Trainees' Handbook of Lessons|
Measuring and scribing are essential working operations of woodworking techniques. They are necessary to guarantee accuracy of fit of wood joints as well as dimensional stability and the design of the workpieces.
Lengths or angles of an object are measured by comparing with a measuring instrument (e.g. a folding rule) on the scale of which the exact measuring rate can be read off. Scribing is transferring the required sizes on the workpieces.
