  5. I’m laying out a large radius for the arched entryway, and I’m old school, so I’ll need:
  • A nail
  • A hammer
  • A long piece of string
  • A pencil
  • Something to sharpen the pencil with

Or, you could just lock your QuickDraw tape measure at the right length and make your damm radius! 

What I just learned: “Time is to money as QuickDraw is to kicking ass!”
