Graphite pencils are not really helpful.
What do you use on these kind of woods?
Euh, white color pencil? (wit kleurpotlood)
A white coloured pencil will work just fine.
I use masking tape Gonzalo (I actually just cut out the Wenge headstock veneer like that), works for me. I put the tape on the Wenge, use a regular pencil over the tape and cut through the tape with a knife. Not sure if you are talking about veneer.. but could be useful anyway.
Regular pencil will work fine, you just need to have your light at the right angle.
But I have also used the white pencil too.
I use white and neon green colored pencils, white pastel pencils or Masking tape when I want to control edge splintering.
Get yourself a silver led pencile
Great guys, thanks all.
I know that graphite has a reflection that when viewed at an angle makes the line visible on dark backgrounds but can be a bit annoying sometimes.
Yeah, I thought of those colored pencils but... -this is going to sound cheap- I´m so, so, so beyond my build budget that I was hoping to stop buying stuff, even pencils. You know, it´s sort of a self imposition that I´m trying to fulfill.
Masking tape is indeed a good solution (you know what I mean with exceeded budgets, don´t you Rob? )
Again thank you all guys!
Well, tape isn't for free either .. but it also has the advantage of preventing edge splintering, like Musiclogic said.
Yeah, i just use a regular lead pencil with a good, strong light source. Works for me.
