Old-school rules! A retro solid oak 12" ruler, made in the UK, laser-engraved with a personalised message - a unique gift for dads.
We don't care how high-tech the world gets - sometimes you need some old-fashioned analogue equipment you can rely on. Any dad needs a bit of reassurance sometimes, so giving him his very own grown-up ruler with 'Daddy Rules The House!' emblazoned on it will help re-establish his alpha-male credentials. Perhaps.
The feedback we get is that these rulers are a fun and original way to send a message or express a sentiment to someone - and they are also a very practical item to have around the home or office. You have a choice of fonts (one of our photos shows the font options), and no limit on the number of characters on the front (although the longer the message, the smaller the letter size). You can also select the option to add three further lines of engraving on the back, if you would like more space to express yourself. Made to order in our workshops in the north west UK, each ruler is cut and finished individually. Each engraving is set up by hand, with care and attention, for the very best results. The laser engraving is a very clean and neat process, and it won't degrade because it burns down into the wood. We fine-sand the edges and corners so they are very comfortable in use.
Made from solid oak, the rulers are very hard wearing and will look better and better the more use they get - there's nothing like a bit of patina on a well-loved object to cherish in future. Unlike some of our other products, we don't coat these with danish oil, as they are handled so often, and it is not needed for protection.
Our rulers are made from solid natural oak. They are very hard wearing and will look better and better the more use they get - there's nothing like a bit of patina on a well-loved object to cherish in future. Unlike some of our other products, we don't coat these with danish oil, as they are handled so often, and it is not needed for protection. They are suitable for use by children however they are not toys.
The rulers are approx 31cm long, 4cm wide and 5mm thick, and are very light. Please note any accessories in the photos aren't included.
