If you build a deck with dry lumber and 1/4" gaps where I live every second board will heave up come the rainy season. I soak the lumber until it can't absorb any more water then butt them up tight. Works like a charm. Auto gapping.
We lose as many carpenter's pencils at work as college students lose socks at the laundromat. I don't think that I ever possessed the same one pencil for longer than three days. Yet, when it comes to mechanical pencils at the drafting tables, I never saw one younger than twenty years old.
Mechanical pencils are usually family heirlooms. You don't dare let yourself lose one, because you'll never hear the end of it if you do.
Leah, answer me this. I am no newbie to almost any kind of DIY stuff. But, why is it when I get my tools for the job together and then start on the job why is it I end up with 95 tools out for a 5 tool job?
Thank you, for I am wiser for the great nugget of knowledge I have learned in this video. I will now throw away my no2 pencil, my pen, my crayon, my rusty nail, my dirty fingernail and finally buy a carpenters pencil dammit.
I just subscribed and rang the bell. I clicked on this because it reminded me of a hip pocket class I did at NCO School. Nostalgia led me to learn three new things and go get two pencils and make a couple new tools. Thank you!
Hi Leah, thanks for making such videos for beginners like myself. I'm not ashamed to admit this video convinced me to buy carpenters pencils. It made a world of difference compared to regular No. 2 pencils that need sharpening so frequently. Your point on shaving it flat was key. I've seen many of your videos and used the techniques and hidden features of tools such as tape measure and squares you featured. I really appreciate the time you take to share all these knowledge you gathered in 20+ years for us to consume and advance in woodworking quickly. Full disclosure, I'm a partner at Men's Soap Company and I made my first project, ever. It is simple but it gave me enough confidence to do more. Again, thank you. Oh, and hope you check out the video: https://youtu.be/ZXv20uqVeKo
cool tutorial .I've been using them all my life.I've used them to measure depth of undercuts such as flooring over a heat register but never realized they were 1/4 by 1/2.I love time saving tips got a bunch of them myself .Never understood why people get irritated when you try to tell them some good stuff on the job
There is another purpose that is intentional. It has six sides. When you sharpen the lead to a point that is centered in both directions, the flat scribes a 1/4" line. Again turn the pencil to the 45 degree facet, and it will scribe an 1/8" line. And again turn the pencil to the narrow flat to scribe a 1/16" line. I do this if I have to account for curf or need to trim/shave for removal to fit.
Great video but there’s even more. The lead (graphite) of a carpenter pencil is 1/8” long by 1/16” wide. You can sharpen it to give you a perfect 1/8” or 1/16” line to complement the 1/2” and 1/4” measurements you make with the body.
All the neophytes who commented "so it won't roll away" obviously the first thought for everyone - Didn't watch the whole video and missed out on some useful tips. But we all know most of the people commenting are dicks and losers with nothing better to do than be an asshole.
