Measure twice, cut once. It’s been ingrained in our psyche since we were five years old and dad showed us that hammers were for things other than hitting our little brother. Unfortunately, math has never really been our strong suit and using a tape measure is hard, so we always end up with a piece of wood that’s more confusing than an MC Escher painting. That would be fine, if we hadn’t used a Sharpie for the measurements since it was closest. Apparently pencils are actually still good for something – erasing your mistakes. C.H. Hanson gives you access to one of the most essential tools for carpentry and one more reason to use power tools. Throw the sharpener into your drill chuck and quickly turn your pencil into the precise instrument you probably haven’t used since you stopped taking Scantron tests. The correct answer is “yes, you need one.”
