Has anyone not heard of this term? I have an
older sister that thinks this makes no sense.
She does not see why you would have to say "cut
to length" when you cut something. She takes it
for granted that everything is measured before
it is cut. Obviously there is a difference. If you not mind responding to this post that you agree with me I can forward them to her in an
email and settle this once and for all. Thanks for your patience.

Of course "cut to length" makes sense when used in the right context. I think of it like "salt to taste".

It is short for cut to custom length as opposed to the length it is off the shelf.

Some lumberyards provide a cutting service. If they have eight foot lumber and you want 6'10", you order and pay for it, "cut to length".
It's a standard term.
