Nice. I'll have to remember this one. Looks easier than cutting a paper template to fit then tracing that to your wood stock..... [scratch chin]
Not as many Sanders as PA Floor guy.....

You might be able to do something similar with chalk, depending on what was happening on either piece?  The transfer sort of applies both ways.

I remember my dentist using a thin blue chalk bite strip when they were installing and shaping a crown a bunch of years ago.  Which I suppose is a little bit more akin to flattening a large slab, but a similar principle nonetheless.

great trick, I use lipstick for similar applications, plus having a lipstick in your toolbag makes for interesting conversations onsite

That's hilarious. I had paint handy but no lipstick!

ROFL on the lipstick.

A few weeks ago I had to install a couple of locks on the drawers of a bathroom vanity, because the couple wanted to rent out their house for Bed & Breakfast while they went on holiday themselves and lock her make-up away. Space was very limited in the cramped bathroom, and after installing the push lock in the side of the vanity, I had no way determine where the pin of the lock touched the drawer when it was closed. So I used some lipstick I found in the drawer, she had an ample supply, and coated the pin with it. Then with the drawer closed I could push the pin down so the location would be marked by the lipstick. Lipstick indeed comes in handy sometimes.
