Drawings

Drawings should be lightly done at first, using a medium hard pencil and boldly outlining when correct, while a 4H pencil should be used for critical measurements. Moulded sections should be heavily outlined to show the correct profile, and all end-grain sections cross-hatched for easy identification. Curved lines should be drawn first and straight lines carried into them, while tracing through to another sheet or to the bare wood can be done with carbon paper or rubbing the back of the drawing with a very soft pencil and then tracing through from the face. Both plans and elevations can be superimposed on one sheet, outlining them in different coloured crayons, but to avoid confusion it is better to keep them well apart wherever possible.
