Here is what it looks like.
This is a view of the completed shooting board. I opted to put
a rail on the right side. You can read the
I wanted to show you some other shoot boards I use in my work. I
have used shooting boards since the mid-1970's, particularly in
making small boxes. I have one long shooting board for
full-sized miter planes and two smaller scale ones. The big one
is 36 inches in length and made of willow oak.
This is the shooting board setup that I most frequently use. It
will allow the shooting of both 90's and right and left 45's. In
order to shoot a left 45 on moldings I have to use a plane other
than the one in the photo.
This is a photo of the miter plane I use most frequently. Note
the thumb tote and the skewed blade configuration.
