I guess I'm not cut out for woodworking. My first thought was that there must be a big market out there for peel-and-stick dovetails, mortices and tenons ;\)

OK, dumb question. When you want to draw out patterns for pieces that are a few feet long, what do you use for paper and where is the easiest place to find it ?

Note that I have much easier access to stores that sell farm supplies than to stores that sell art supplies.

A roll of butcher paper, maybe?

Bridg, try giving Currys Art Supply a call. They carry lots of art and drafting materials and have a location in Whitby on your side of T.O.

Thanks guys. As long as I don't have to go into downtown TO, art supplies are fine ;\)

Butcher paper was my first thought but I had no idea if it even existed any more, now that meat comes in little plastic trays made from a quart of oil. If it still exists, guess I'll look for that first. Presumably I should look for a roll of butcher paper rather than just buying a side of beef and asking to have it wrapped in paper... then again summer's here and I haven't smoked any beef since... yikes, 2 years.

Edit - I guess the other option is to pick up a 2x4 sheet of cheap hardboard, draw directly on that then cut it out to make patterns. Definitely cheaper than a side of beef.

But a smoked hardboard sandwich is not nearly as delicious.

But certainly adds to the fibre intake!

You would be better off with 1/4" MDF than hard board. You can shape it with a sander and have a nice edge for router bit bearings or guide bushings. I use it for patterns quite often. I gave up on paper years ago. It tends to move on you.... MDF and double sided tape works great.
