My math skills are non existent beyond basic math, and I'm trying to
figure out how to space holes evenly along a center line in an area.
Let's say I have a rectulanglar block, 6" long ,less 1/4" on each end
for a border and I want to evenly space 6- 3/4" holes. How do you figure
that? My daughter-in-law says you can do that in one of those cheap home
design programs. That would be ideal for me. Anyone use one of those
programs that knows if they can be used for that? Thanks.


This will do the same thing for you:

I wrote this one to give me slat/spindle spacing for Arts and Crafts
furniture projects, but it will work for holes, and fence posts if
necessary.


I forgot to mention: In Excel, right click on C7|Format Cell| and choose
your desired fraction. I use 1/16

The last time it was used before it was uploaded years ago, someone
obviously changed the fraction denominator.
