Templates


Okay, so I just saw Tom on TOH templating for a piece of vinyl flooring. He laid down felt or some other type of template material so it was not quite touching the perimeter walls; then took his framing square and butted it against the walls, traced onto the template material. After he finished, he moved the template material onto his finish material and lined the square up with the lines and traced on the opposite side onto the finish material for his cut marks. I would have never thought to do this for an entire floor like this, but then again I have never laid single sheet vinyl roll before either. Its a great idea that I am sure has been around since the beginning of time. I want to learn some more ideas like it. So whatever you specialize in, finishing, framing, tile, etc... I am sure you make some sort of templates on a regular basis......How? Explain how you make templates, story poles etc for your different applications. Lets see how many different ones we can get on here.

Don't think that this was necessary, but okay, sure, whatever
