The start of most of Paul’s projects begins with corrugated cardboard from cardboard boxes, sticky tape, contact cement, and strips of different materials. It saves time and mistakes, and enables you to stand things in place in a room as a placeholder–something to check visually for its size concerning the available or allocated space and to help you to visualise the overall concept too. It’s quicker and easier to make changes to cardboard mockups and then transfer the changes to full-size drawings and the patterns you might create. From the point of accepting the design, Paul quickly moves into preparing the wood with confidence knowing the sizes are right.

    Hi Paul,

    I’m sure this is a personal preference or depends on the situation type of question but when checking for thickness, how much variation do you generally say is acceptable? For example, if your drawing calls for 3/4 thickness and you measure .745 and the other .760 or anything in between; would you continue or try to reduce the variation?
