About The Rulers

Every Family Rule height chart is cut, stained, and carefully painted by hand. The wood used for each ruler is unique, meaning that no two height charts will ever be the same. All sustainably sourced from an FSC and PEFC assured, family run timber merchant.

Your ruler will be made using soft wood, with all the natural knots and imperfections adding to its character and charm. The markings and personalisation are then attentively hand painted for a rustic feel that compliments the wood.

Unlike pencil on a wall, a Family Rule height chart can be removed when redecorating, taken with you when you move, and passed down through the generations.

They make wonderful gifts for; baby showers, weddings, christenings, birthdays, Christmas, or even just a treat for your family!

Available in four colours, your ruler height chart can be personalised with your choice of message. We are happy to discuss each order with you directly, to ensure it is made exactly how you want it. If there is something particular you have in mind - just let us know, and we will be happy to help.

The Story Of Family Rule…

When I was about six months pregnant with our first child I decided I wanted to make a present for our soon-to-be family of three.

As a military family I knew we would move often so wanted something we could always take with us that would carry treasured memories for years to come. Rather than simply buying one of the paper or fabric versions I had seen in some stores I decided to get my creative hat on and give it a go myself using a scrap piece of wood.

Let's just say my very first attempt was not my finest creation. Nevertheless, it is now a cherished item in our home, holding a permanent record of our daughter's growth from the moment she was born. By also adding in our friends and family along the way we now have a treasured snapshot of family moments shared over the years.

The best thing about it is we will never have to leave it behind and can keep adding to it as our family continues to grow.

With so many positive comments over the first few years from friends, family and neighbours I decided it was time to hone my skills and create beautiful, quality and personalised ruler height charts that would be accessible for everyone.

After months of practising, sanding, marking, staining, stenciling and perfecting, I can now happily share with you the latest Family Rule height chart options.

I hope you enjoy exploring this site and it helps you decide exactly how you want your own personal Family Rule to be. If you have any Family Rule ideas of your own that you would like to see brought to life, please get in touch at hello@familyrule.co.uk.
