What a simple way to mark a board to fit against a non flat wall.

I've seen that as a way to increase or decrease the size of a pattern but hadn't thought of it as a way to mark an uneven wall. Good tip.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I like it, but without actually trying it, I'm wondering how well the washer rotates and if a small bearing might be even better.

Cool. With a 118-year old house that used to be a barn and doesn't have a straight line in it I'll need to remember this one.
