    How important are rulers in cabinet making?

    Thread Starter: Gabriel Marusic

    My dad is a hobbyist woodworker that primarily makes furniture for around the house and I recently decided I want to join in the hobby with him.

    Good enough vs overkill

    Thread Starter: Mark Hennebury
