Wooden Ruler Height Charts for all the family

When I came up with the idea of making a height chart that looked like a Ruler some 15 years ago, my children were youngsters and measuring their heights was the sole aim of producing such a product. Now I’ve been in business for the past 11 years, my small children have grown up (all passing me on the height front)! and are now adults themselves. So, I’ve begun to look at my height charts with fresh eyes.

I’ve heard people’s comments over the years about not needing one as their children are too tall, or flown the nest, or they have no grandchildren yet. All these comments are of course fine, but moving forward I realised there was more to measuring our heights than just for the children. No matter where I take my rulers, young or old, everyone always wants to measure themselves!

Each Ruler Height Chart is cut from top quality environmentally friendly Redwood Pine, then chamfered stained & screen printed to look just like your original old school ruler. Measurements include feet & inches on one side & centimeters on the other, just like they were at school only this ruler goes up to 6'6"

More About Our Rulers

Because each Ruler is made by hand, no two rulers will ever be the same, and as wood is a natural product yours may have knots, hairline splits or minor dents. These are natural imperfections and add character to your ruler. Wood naturally gives off moisture and it’s a fact that timber will move with whatever is going on around it. For this reason we recommend hanging your Ruler as soon as you receive it, which will help it settle into its environment & prevent the woods twisting.

No more recording your family’s heights on the wall, then wondering what to do when you move or need to redecorate. Take your Ruler Height Chart with you through life and it will become the heirloom everyone wants to inherit!

As an alternative to the Original wooden Ruler Height Chart, you can also choose from one of our painted rulers, from the gorgeous range of Farrow & Ball colours. If you’d like yours personalised, go for the Bespoke Ruler.
