I use a ruler.

I typically turn legs, so often the legs are longer than necessary.
I put the completed chair (or bench) on a level surface (usually my table saw).
I level the bench using pairs of wedges and some levels.
I then measure the distance from the seat to the surface.
Say it is 20" - I set my Accuscribe to 18" and draw a line on each leg.
I then cut the leg to length.

I sand the end of the leg - and I am done.

I had to do a set of 8' benches - for those I made a torsion box and put that on my workbench.
