Sorry, it's just a remake of a tool that's been around for years called a Stair Wizard (which usually costs $169) So this is only twice as much as a competitive tool.

I almost needed a new keyboard when I read this line
"So, when woodworkers have to put shelves in an existing space, they’re going to naturally assume the structure is square -- and lose their minds just a little bit when it’s not."
Seriously, this is day one stuff, never assume anything is square, even if you built it yourself.

This tool is for Pro's who refit treads & risers all day, if you're only doing a gew pieces or one set of stairs, you can save money by using either a transfer scribe, a cardboard template or a stick. Then you would still have $300 in your pocket
There are also YouTube videos on how to make one for a few dollars in hardware and a couple pieces of wood.

Try fitting shelves inside an old aircraft carrier!!!

Long ago, I worked for the company that designed and installed the museum in the Intrepid Aircraft Carrier.

We learned very quickly that there is not a single straight edge or right angle anywhere on the ship.

Everything had to be scribed in to fit the shape of the ship.

Of all the museums and stuff I worked on, that was my favorite!! Smiley Smiley

or a want to be wood worker to hang on their shop wall and make it look like they are a pro.

I would rather use cardboard and tape then this overly priced $h- -it and spend the money on more wood.
