A METAL ruler is a must for DIY be­cause it’s sturdy and rigid and you can’t score into it ac­ci­den­tally with a craft knife.

The main prob­lem with metal rulers is that they can slip on smooth sur­faces, so make sure you spread your fin­gers out along the length of the ruler to hold it down.

Go for a ruler that’s cal­i­brated right up to the end, as this makes mea­sur­ing and mark­ing much eas­ier.
