Marking dark wood

A pencil line on many exotic woods is nearly invisible. The bark of most trees is equally difficult to mark before cutting. One answer is a white china marking pencil, available from office supply stores. Its is designed to mark on glossy surfaces, and the white line is easily visible.

On some dark woods I have used Tippex and then added my pencil line on that, it does work but oily woods create their own difficulties!
