The best woodworking tips are often the simplest. If you don’t do finish carpentry work every day, you might not be aware of these simple but really effective tips.

All these tips are from seasoned pros who know exactly what they’re talking about. Like a lot of methods in woodworking, there’s more than one way to do something correctly, but taking a look at the daily methods that help other woodworkers can be of benefit to you too.

1. MARKING

Sometimes the best way of getting the most accurate cut doesn’t involve using a tape measure at all. This old school trick is really effective, especially with an uneven floor.

2. MEASURING

3. COPING

In most cases, cutting a mitre joint for internal corners of baseboard/ skirting board is not the most effective way of joining. You are at the mercy of perfect 90 degree walls if this is your method. So you’ll need to cope your joints instead. Watch how a pro does it in less than a minute.
