I am a woodworker and use the concept of Golden Ratios in my wood projects all the time. For years I used a free app that functions very similarly to this one—input the known dimension, with the short or long length, and the app would provide the correct ratio. It went away, so I created this one.


This app is straightforward. Select which ratio you would like: Golden, Silver, or Bronze (there are others, these ratios are the most used). Provide the known dimension, either the short side or long side, and press calculate, and the app will provide the other proportion of the ratio you have selected.

If you prefer dimensions in metric, tap the switch, your selection is saved until you tap the switch again.

You can view the calculation results in inches (well, feet too), centimeters, or millimeters dynamically; just select how you would like to view the results.

Please keep in mind that I chose to round off the result as this app is designed to provide a value to meet the eye rather than an engineering exactitude.

The Golden Ratio does a simple task, and you do not need access to the Internet to use it!

Happy Woodworking!

For creating the perfect size ratios, here’s the perfect app

They say beauty is in the eye of the beerholder, than at very well be. However, there’s no denying that a features proportions on comparable scale of one another, is the very definition of how we as humans find all visual objects, attractive. I think Fibonacci himself would have used this app. DaVinci certainly would have. Using this app is as easy as contracting The Covid, and alike, they’re both manmade. Thank you, to the creator of this handy app. I have found it more than useful.

Great App for Woodworking

The golden ratio it’s very useful for woodworking. I enjoy wood turning and wood like to get into box making for someone who doesn’t really have a great eye for proportion this app will take away the “I hope it looks good” moments.

The only thing I would like to see is the ability to input the total length and have the app break it down into the proper proportions.
