Shooting Board


Recommended Posts

I have been reading about shooting boards for several months. Seemed like a good idea but never took it much further.


Lately I am becoming more of a Hybrid Woodworker thanks to Marc Spagnuolo. I bought a new Lie Nielsen #62 low angle jack plane a while back and there was a link for shooting board plans with it.  I decided to give it a try so I built a short version to see how it worked.  I was amazed and after a little research decided to build another that would fit my personal needs better.  Today I tossed together a better one. The man difference besides making it longer was making the fence/stop adjustable so I could move it towards the cut over time. This allows me to plane end grain without any tear-out.


Makes me want a regular shooting plane !
