The story stick is a time-tested tool that simplifies cabinet layout and the repeated transfer of measurements to your cabinet parts. Slide the provided markers onto a 1/2'' dowel, 1/2'' square tubing, Rockler T-Track or a strip of 3/8'' x 3/4'' scrap wood to indicate the positions of your face frame rails, or the dados in your casework. Once set, use the hook as you would a tape measure to transfer the positions to all of your stiles or cabinet panels as a batch. Since the indicators are fixed, it is much more foolproof than a tape measure. With a long enough stick, you can even use the kit to mark window, door and outlet locations etc. when measuring a room for built-in cabinetry. Two indicators may be used to check the diagonals of cases and drawers for square, or to achieve even spacing when arranging wall hangings. Stick/dowel not included.

(4) Story Stick Indicators with Metal Thumb Screws

Using the story stick markers
This tool comes in handy when I'm making dado cuts in some boards, or putting drawer slides into a cabinet I built. It keeps the distances all the same from side to side. Excellent guide tool.

Excellent product as usual, but I have my usual comment -- product would be more valuable with instructions/examples on where and how to use most effectively, perhaps on handy laminated card.

I need an adjustable story stick and it was either make one or buy this one. Cost and time were the main factors in buying this set up.

These story stick parts provide an easy way to make a story stick for reproducible measurements with any length stick.

I make different wood projects and can use this kit.
John M on Mar 31, 2017
I need a way to make dado markings easier as well mark where shelves will be placed on a small cabinet. Using a tape measure, does not work too well, and the tape keeps moving off mark, and I've made some dado cuts that were off by as much as 1/2".
Hans H on Mar 22, 2017
Perfect tool for cabinetry. Do a lot of kitchen / bathroom cabinets

What are they made of?
CEA on Oct 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The blue part and the orange parts are plastic. The thumb screw goes into a metal insert molded into the blue part. If you zoom in on the picture that shows just the 5 pieces, you can see the inserts.
