What makes our Woodworking Rule better than your average yardstick? First, it's much more accurate with precise laser engraved markings. Second, it's straighter and heavier. Third, it sits flat because of a recess down the center of the bottom surface. Fourth, it has both a standard and a center scale. Fifth, the markings are engraved on a 30 degree bevel for easy alignment to pencil marks. And finally, it looks nicer. When you look at all the different rules being sold in retail stores, they're all pretty much intended for framing houses or general purpose use without any thought on how to make them better for those of us who build furniture and cabinets. Tape measures are great if you're building a shed. They're not dependably accurate enough for finished furniture parts. Tape measures also don't make good straight edges to draw lines with. For that we usually look for the nearest scrap piece of lumber that we hope is straight.

    Excellent Product

    Ok, we all know that Woodpeckers have become the definitive high quality tool makers in the US for woodworkers, but I thought I'd jot down that this length of ruler along with the stop has a solid feel and is just great to use in the shop. I also use this for alignment of faces or parts since it's so solid. I have a Paolini Pocket rule, but this feels better to handle and maneuver due to its larger size. Hope this helps. Nick D.
