I had never heard of these layout/measuring jigs until I got interested in wooden boats. I know that I could easily search the web for a tutorial, but I am sure that there are others like me are not familiar with them, or do not know how to use them properly. From what little I've read, they sound like a real time and effort saver, and cheap to make.

There's an example of one in use picking up and transferring a frame shape, about halfway down page 50...
