I am working on a project for my wife and found that I have to mitre the ends of the box for the project. I can cut these on my RAS or my table saw but they will not be exactly right, so I went off on an adventure to find plans for a shooting board that will allow me to shoot a 45 degree bevel across a 13 board edge. Needless to say I did not find any large format shooting board plans that would work for what I need to do. Some of the boards that I am working with are just over five feet long and holding that in place while pushing a hand plane to shoot the mitre can be difficult. So after some thought and trial and error I came up with a bevel shooting board that keeps the board flat and puts the plane at a 45 degree angle to the board. This allows me to shoot it like I would on a normal shooting board plus I can use the handle on the plane instead of gripping the side. It works really well. When I finish the project that I am working on I plan on drawing up plans for it and posting it for others if you are interested. Follow the link to some pictures. Pictures.
