Frictionless shooting board.

05-09-2014 12:54 AM by lateralus819 | 10 comments »

I have been working on this for a few weeks now, it has been interesting to say the least. Knowing what i know now, i probably wouldn’t do it again, or maybe i would. It was a fun build. I still need to make a donkey ear and miter fence, But i have ideas about those. It was a relatively cheap project, the most consisting of the slides and brass/aluminum. I had the plywood from some scrap i scored at work for free. I was originally going to just use UHMW, but upon browsing the hardwar...

Japanese planing boardJapanese workbench Ok as promised I will continue the Japanese blog series.It all started by me reading Toshio Odate’s book ‘Japanese woodworking tools their tradition spirit and use’, and now since I have moved to a new location where I at least for a while will have no workshop, the story will continue since I plan on using Japanese tools and methods in the meantime. Get started MaFe. So to work with my Japanese tools, I needed Japanese ‘set ...

Shooting board small (fit also Festool MFT) BLOG

08-06-2010 02:12 AM by mafe | 12 comments »

Shooting boardMade to fit the bench, a table or the Festool MFT The other day I was annoyed that I had to plane some end grain, and had no shooting board.I wanted a little board that I can bring with me when needed, with a 45 degree function also, and that will work with a little low angel 60,5 blockplane, and a normal no.3 or 4 handplane. So, what is a shooting board?A base in two layers, that have the purpose of letting the plane run forward and backwards, and be ‘shot’...

Shoot your edges #1: New Shooting Board

11-26-2009 06:15 AM by parkerdude | 0 comments »

Hi Everyone, I decided to remake my shooting board because my first try left a little to be desired. I wanted more accuracy and I didn’t have the ability to shoot 45° mitres. I started with some reclaimed 3/4” common plywood and a piece of hardboard. I had an extra piece of walnut that I’d cut, so I had all the wood that I needed. I spent some time surfing the net for ideas an found a few good ones. http://www.evenfallstudios.com/woodworks/category/shooting-b...

My Shooting Board #1: Another method for making this handy tool

02-06-2008 12:36 AM by Bob #2 | 13 comments »

After seeing the neat job that MOT/ Tom did with his shooting board I was enticed to make one of my own.I am in the middle of milling some wood for small boxes so I will needed something to handle these small gauge materials.I am a pack rat and wood hoarder by genetic make up so when I dug through one of my precious piles of scrap I found an old poplar plywood shelf, a piece of arborite (Tom’s idea) and a piece of 3/4” fir flooring plywood.The rest were off cuts of oak walnut etc ...

Shooting Board

01-25-2008 12:16 PM by Eric | 6 comments »

A shooting board isn’t considered a major project – or even a minor one – for most woodworkers. However, it’s something I want to write about because at this early stage in my woodworking journey, I’m learning something new with every endeavor. Skills Learned/Practiced: using a square (and I’m glad I invested in a Starrett) using a block plane to trim up (flush) the edges making a very thin cut with my dovetail saw (to avoid having to plane/san...

Jigs as Important as Tools

01-23-2008 03:35 PM by Eric | 4 comments »

My wife is out of the country attending a conference, and while I do have kid duty (age 4.5 and 3), I still manage to steal away from time to time to do some woodworking. Gotta love those DVDs that have the “Play Continuously” option! So even though I’m supposed to be working on my bench, I get these ideas of things to make and want to act on them. One of them is to make my wife a little box. She has no need of a little box, but it’s the thought that counts. Well, t...

Jigs and Fixtures #3: Shooting Board Basics - VIDEO

01-13-2008 08:46 PM by mot | 35 comments »

WayneC, Bob #2 and I, have had some conversations about shooting boards. The conversations don’t last long because we all agree with eachother. It’s really the death of conversation. However, some of the hand tool posts have netted some good questions on what a shooting board is, how it works, what it does and how you use it. I put together a 15 minute overview of the basics of the shooting board. Please note, the shooting board is a tool that will have unlimited uses in yo...

Rocking Horse #2: Inlays!

12-16-2007 05:18 AM by mot | 9 comments »

I got a couple of hours down in the shop tonight, so I did the inlays on the horse. I started by resawing some walnut that I had laying around left over from God knows what. I couldn’t use the GRRipper here, so no controversy tonight! I ran the pieces through the Performax to get them fairly close to size. I made a little router jig to route the grooves for the inlays. I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to do this, but I brainstormed with Bob #2 and then deci...
