    That wouldn’t be exact center though. Pulling your ruler down increases the length, thereby increasing what half the length is.

      It’s still halfway across the board, though. He’s finding the location of the center of the board, not the distance from the edge to the center.

    A hook rule is much easier to use in cases like this – an essential tool in my shop.
