WoodMaster is a very handy tool for Woodworkers. Finally a LOADED Woodworking app for Woodworkers. Woodworking apps are few and far between and as being Woodworkers ourselves, we wanted an app for Woodworkers that did much more than simple board foot calculations! Welcome to WoodMaster!
Both beginners and advanced Woodworkers will find WoodMaster packed with many time-saving features! Check the features list below and you will find a long list useful tools that only WoodMaster includes in a singe app! WoodMaster will continue to grow with more tools being added to each new version release.

Ratings and Reviews
Not worth the money
Little things make this app unusable. It is the default keyboard for entering numbers so I'm constantly having to hit the numbers key to do so. Fraction calculator works but there are apps that do it better for free. Most of the functions are kind of neat but I don't really need them in an app. All in all, I wish I could get my money back.

Our Apologies Nicky, for not being able to override the standard Apple keyboard. The numeric keyboard does not have a decimal point by default so we opted for letting the device use the default keyboard. This is the first time we're hearing a complaint about having to use the Apple keyboard for input. We will work on an alternate method.
Not sure that a one star rating is fair though. Thanks for taking a 20-volt cordless circular saw to the app with that rating :/
For $7.99 this app offers very little functionality. Only the newest, most inexperienced woodworker would find any value in this app.

Thanks Papa Dale, for taking a 6" 18-volt Reciprocating saw to our app :/ To state "little functionality" is simply not true. Anyone who sees the screenshots on the website will know all the features the app has. WoodMaster is loaded with many features that most Woodworkers would find very handy. The WoodMaster team is made up of Woodworkers with many years experience and we put a lot of thought into what might help fellow Woodworkers.
App Great. Support even better!
You might make mention that the price looks steep, but if you look around your own shop, each tool is an investment. For quality work and craftsmanship, sometimes it is worth paying the couple bucks up front to save hours and money in the long run. With this app, you won't be disappointed.
Also, having a problem or question will be responded to very promptly. I had a small question and within minutes a response was in my inbox. Kudos on the App and even better to know there is a team of people who care about their customers. Thanks.
