Topic tags/keywords: tire-mark oak grain question

Any hints for using tite-Mark with the grain in the Oak? The grain of the wood in oak is so course that it hides the tite-Mark lines so that they’re practically undetectable, at least in the oak I’m using. I guess I could cover it with blue tape And scribe the lines in that. Any other ideas?

The blue tape is a winner. Michael Pekovich pioneered the idea a few years ago and it works, regardless of the type of wood.

When I have problems seeing scribe lines I use raking light. Sometimes in the morning it’s very good low light
The blue tape is also a good idea

I like the yellow frog tape the best.

(PS: it’s best to clean off the tire marks first) :)

Tire mark, title mark, tite mark. I got lost in the translation.
