Have you heard about the golden mean? It’s all about proportions – 1 to 1.618 – which most people find pleasing to the eye.

For example, if you use the gauge when making a box, use all three arms for the length of the box and two arms for the width. Looking at your projects, I think you can do it intuitively.

Let me know if you want examples – I’m too pooped to do math tonight.

best regards, Doe
