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 your shop. For box makers, I think it’s as invaluable as your imagination. The shooting board can be used in many ways and I’ve tried to cover three or four ways that I make use of it. Construction of the shooting board can take many different forms. A quick google of Shooting Board, will net you some great discussions and information.
Also, on Lumberjocks, you can read some of the projects and discussions from WayneC, Bob #2, and yours truely.
So, onto the video. Enjoy! Of course, any questions or comments are greatly appreciated.
