Woodworking is an ancient art – most all stock is fractional dimensions. You have precision implications when converting back and forth. 5/16” tolererences to 1/32” while 0.3125” suggests 0.0001” – impossible in wood 0.31” doesn’t obviously map to 5/16” and implies .010” tol.

Incra makes incredible rules:

Fractions make it easy to halve and double in your head – a common event in woodworking.
