I know my geometry teacher would be ashamed but darned if I can remember how to do this. I need to scribe an oval to insert a sink into a counter top and the sink didn't come with a template. I remember a method using 2 nails and a lop of string but don't remember the measurements for placing the nails or loop of string. And yes I know I can flip the sink and draw the outline BUT I know the 'how to' will come in handy one of these days.
Any help would be appreciated

the math, just draw what you want. For

Better yet make your own: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgT5deym1Qk
