Wow!! Thanks for that suggestion! I have a thing that you wear like a hat with a light and magnifier lense. It is just too hot and heavy. Sorry I got it.

I have that ruler but rarely use it. I simply cut my centers, then cut strips the width I want to use as logs. I sew them around and cut as I go, using (horrors!) scissors. I square up at the end....
