One Tape Measure To Rule Them All | Woodworking Tips and Tricks

Let me share some woodworking tips and tricks with you using tape measures. You should only be using one tape measure on your projects. If you have multiple tape measures, this could cause problems. Major problems. Have you ever had the legs of a table wobble? Are the legs of your bench uneven? This could be the cause. Check out this video and let me show you why one tape measure should rule them all. This woodworking hack could save your project. I will also discuss the FastCap flat tape measure and what I like and don’t like about it. As well as the Komelon tape measure, which is my favorite tape measure I’ve ever used. I dare say that the Komelon may be the best tape measure for woodworking. Amazon and other affiliate links are used in this description and they help support this channel.
