I’ve been meaning to ask if you have ever considered left-handed cutting boards? I do quite a lot of patchwork & the most popular suppliers of materials looked at me as if I was mad when I enquired at a large patchwork event. They told me just to turn the board around! This doesn’t work as one side is shown in inches & the other in centimetres, both going from left to right. (I hope this makes sense – you might like to try it out on an old envelope!). I usually just subtract e.g. 18â€³ – 7â€³ = 11â€³, but it would be much easier with a left-handed board! I would imagine other left-handed quilters & craftspeople would be glad of this too.
|We have not come across anything like this – we had to have our own left-handed rulers made with the scales going form right to left and I guess this is something that would need to be custom-made as well. This normally requires a large volume (minimum for our rulers is 2,000 of each size at a time) so is not easy for specialist products like your cutting board.
We’ll keep a look out and if anyone knows of a source for these please add a comment to this page.
Right-handed full size hacksaws (not the puny junior hacksaw types) have the blade flush to the left and the frame to the right, so the right-handed person can make a flush cut with the right hand. A left-handed hacksaw naturally would be a mirror image with the blade flush to the right. I can’t find one anywhere. Do you have a tool supplier who would make a left-handed hacksaw?
