Crude But Useful

Since I am generally proportion-deficient when sketching but want my architectural sketches to be somewhat realistic in dimensions, I put together this crude measuring device. I call it a "Measurybob". It is simply a pair of unbroken wooden chop-sticks with markings of 1", 1/2" and 1/4" increments. By holding this at arms length, I can quickly size up the relative dimensions of my sketch subject. It is cheap, handy to carry, easy to replace and can attach nicely to a pocket or bag sleeve. :-)
