Uniform/Consistent Dough Thickness

I didn't see a topic on this.. What does one do to keep the thickness of the cookies consistent? Right now I have eyeballed it, and it has worked for the most part. But I did read the topic about what you use to roll out the cookies, and many use a silicone mat or a marble slab.

I feel I get very even rolls without any additional equipment, just by regularly rotating the dough and rolling in various directions. But some people use dough guides; there is also a relatively new "system" that includes such guides and a big silicone rolling mat, which you can find advertised to the right on all of our Clips pages (here's the direct link: https://shop-dough-ez-com.3dcartstores.com/?AffId=19). In commercial operations, sheeters, of course, are widely used to roll dough of all types to uniform thicknesses.

I used to put a wooden chop stick on the sides of my dough and roll over those. Now I use a Joseph & Joseph rolling pin with the guides. There's a carpenter that makes/sells dough boards but they are about $100. I've seen some people make their own. Just make sure that if you buy something, that it has the thickness that you want.
