Welcome to the first blog post of 2019!
A short one this month, the scale ruler..
What is a scale ruler and what is it used for?
A scale ruler is very similar to a standard ruler just with extra numbers and scales for each measurement ratio.
It’s used to convert measurements/dimensions into a smaller size that’s easier to show on a small plan (designing a house for example).
I use a scale ruler every time I design a piece of furniture and use the metric 1:10 and 1:5 scale most often.
1:10 scale turns 10mm (1 cm) into 100mm (10cm)
1:5 scale turns 10mm (1 cm) into 50mm (5cm)
That’s all for January, look out for next months Tool!

Here you can see what I have been up to in the workshop, gain an insight into my work and some of the many tools I use to make each piece of bespoke furniture.
