This is my first project measurement came from LN package
I use baltic birch for the base.
And use lyptus for fence and guide.
Did not have 1/2 ply had to glue to 1/4 to make it up.

It’s a shooting board, used to square up edges and such. The plane rides against a fence and the wood you are squaring is placed against a fence, which are 90 degrees perpendicular to one another, making squaring up your work easy and accurate.

Nice work August!

Looks great. I need to build a new one (first attempt was before I had ever even used a shoot board). I hope you don’t mind if I borrow some inspiration. :)

-- I measured once, cut twice, and its still too short...

Hey go right ahead I’m not a woodworker

Let me know if you can’t find it I’ll fax over the drawings
Thanks for looking

Man, you’ve got a fancy shooting plane to go with your fancy board.
Great setup – not familiar with lyptus, I’m guessing it’s some variation of eucalyptus? Is that a regional wood?

Thanks colonel
The board is seeing lots of action already
Here I intentionally left it long

Angle the wood for a small chamfer
And then flip it over so the chamfer is up against the wood fence and then shoot away


And I show here a very small chamfer
