How to Safely Cut Multiple Dowels and Thin Sticks at Exactly the Same Length


Posted on: February 7th, 2013 by Sandra Powell 1 Comment


Sometimes you need to cut multiple thin strips of wood or wooden dowels and you want them all exactly the same length.  Who wants to measure, mark and cut a whole bunch of wooden dowels or thin strips?  Not me, that would be tedious.

cutting multiple dowels at the same length

  • I stack or bundle all the pieces together and wrap them up with painters tape.  (lined up exactly for same cut length)
  • Measure and make ONE mark on the whole bundle.
  • Make sure the bundle is taped directly before and after (or right in the middle) of the cut mark
  • Cut!

It’s safer, easier,  faster and generally more accurate than cutting them all one by one.
