Timber framers (such as myself), like to perpetuate the myth that the mysterious and esoteric art of “scribing” is beyond the comprehension and capacity of mere mortals. It makes us feel we are the noble guardians of some secret, impenetrable, enigmatic code that is only available to a select few……Cobblers!
Scribe Rule timber frame

You just need an eyeball, a pencil, a plumb bob and a bit of practice.
