I love Ruler Boxes – they are perfect for storing supplies in the sewing room. I have a couple of Ruler Boxes that I purchased from Temecula Quilt Co but wanted a divided ruler box that was bigger. I found some old wooden rulers that my kids used when they were in primary school. They were quite marked but a good clean and a light sand had them looking as good as new. Although they aren’t as thick or as sturdy as yard sticks they were still suitable for a ruler box.
We recently reviewed and road-tested the new Dremel 4000 and Dremel Moto-Saw. While we had the tools set up, my husband made me a ruler box. He cut four 30 cm (12 inch) rulers into two long sides, and four short pieces, to create the box. A scrap of mdf board was used as the base, and the rulers were simply glued into position using wood/craft glue. It was a quick and easy project. I love my new ruler box and it will be perfect for storing some trims/laces on my sewing table. I love recycling and repurposing objects from around the home into something useful.
