I'm making a couple of changes this time, while I've marked the legs and stretchers with chiseled Roman numerals before I've always marked on the non-show side and usually just one side.

Workshop Hacks Episode 12 - Woodworking Tips and Tricks I liked them because the drill bit sizes are easy to read and the store a good variety oF sizes, but there are many, many of similar versions on the market and the metal ones are definitely better and longer lasting.
