Default RE: Building Giant scale Question

A couple of other ways to transfer plan shapes to wood, though the Kinko's method is by far the easiest.

1) Use carbon paper and ttrace the outlines. Works best on harder woods, such as those you would want to use for hard patterns that are going to be used many times.

2) Go to a fabric store and pick up a tracing wheel used for transferring paper patterns to fabric. This tool has many little teeth on a wheel that you roll around the plan markings while it is in place over you working material.
