|Brace Marking Template
|This is an idea I borrowed from Charlie Hoffman. It is quite labor intensive to measure and plot all
brace locations accurately. This simple tool satisfies the need to accurately and quickly lay out a
top or back for brace placement. Thanks Charlie for sharing!
|This is a sheet of plexiglass, with the braces laid out using a
Sharpie marker. At the intersections you will drill 1/8 inch
holes. On the side of the line where your braces go, simply
place an x to mark the spot. Using the top and bottom center
holes for alignment to the top, mark each hole or intersection
using a pencil.
|Above you see the 1/8th inch drilled marking holes
of the template. Also notice the x marking brace
location or a double line to indicate brace sides.
