Beautiful Tasmanian timber ruler

6 Comments | posted 9/06/10

A ruler surfaced recently while clearing out the house. I don’t know where it came from or when we obtained it, but I think it’s beautiful. It’s a little scratched, but the colours are still lovely. The separating strip of wood in the centre is polished, and has a beautiful sheen to it that the photos don’t quite do justice to. The background for the photos is actually a skate deck!

  1. Ha! We’ve got one just like that lying around here somewhere. Of course there’s zero chance I’d be able to locate it if I tried.

  2. That’s always the way.

  3. This thing is gorgeous. I’m a sucker for beautiful wood, and its always nice to have a ruler around. I think the best ruler I have is my one that lists all of the rulers of England since 1071.

  4. Haha, I’d buy one of them for the inferred pun alone.

  5. Ah yes, the rulers. I make them in Westbury Tasmania. If you’re interested phone me on 0418371692

  6. Good afternoon,

    Where can I buy a Tasmanian timber ruler in Melbourne, please.

    Best wishes,
