Pshhh, for me, the shooting board will be easy. It’s getting that hunk of wood, steel, brass and iron that cuts the wood is my problem

haha, yeah I caught one of the Lee Valley cyber-monday sale “factory seconds” shooting planes about a year and a half ago. Finally got around to making a new shooting board for it, instead of the one I made before I really knew what I was doing lol

heh, I’d have to actually get some work done on the new shop in order to have an update…. only “update” I have, is that there’s a critter of some sort in there, found the manual for one of the sets of recessed lights all chewed up lol

A bevel shooter is definitely on the list, ever since I first saw the one Andy made as well… next will likely be a fixture for this one so I can shoot miters next…

I like the idea of the guide track for the plane. Gr8 shooter.

Thanks! The track is quite nice, don’t have to push the plane against the shooting board that way
