This oversized ruler will record the height of my son. we plan to record his height each year on his birthday. My family did this on a door frame when I was a kid but when we moved we had to leave the door frame there for obvious reasons.

I used a 1×8 pine board and carved out the numbers and lines with a 1/2” chisel. It was a simple project but one worth sharing.

So much better than marking the door frame or those flimsy paper things!

Cool giant ruler! It looks way better than the plastic and paper ones. Great job!
