    Please have a look at this website. It has animations that will walk you through several different geometric constructions that are very handy in design and layout. Remember that a compass and straight edge are far more accurate than trying to transfer several dimensions.

    Easy when you know how. Thank Greg… I’ve bookmarked this site. A very useful resource.

    I wish that what I know now, I knew when I was younger.

    Thanks guys. I’ve posted about this book before but here it is again. This book changed the way that I look at everything, especially how I design my woodworking projects.

    Greg et al,
    Here’s a link for a triangle calculator that I find helpful if you’re trigonometrically challenged like me.
