A lot of problems with "fit" are directly to do with marking and measuring. These are the first things you do in any project so how well you do it will depend on the success of the rest of your project. Most of these mistakes occur because using the wrong tools at the wrong time. Here is a list of basic tools you will need for marking and measuring:
- A tape measure
- Precision marking ruler with 1/32 units
- A T-square
- Pencil set specifically for woodworking.
- A combination square
- A sliding bevel
- A protractor
- A digital caliper
