A few days ago or a week ago
My old shooting board had a battle with creature

And my shooting board lost

I want to say thanks to my friends that gave me advice

Looks great, must have been the creature’s way of telling you that a new board is needed.

Auggie, great looking board but I have a few questions: why angle the board downward as you have? what is the material (thin strip of something) that rubs up against the cutting face of the plane? I assume it is only as high as the low edge of the plane blade, correct? * if you were using a No 5 plane, as I will be (cutter ninety degrees to the sides) would you slope the board at a different angle or maybe no angle?

Thanks.

Very interested in how you did the retaining pins on the mitered section. Is this the stuff at the bottom to help the plane slide better? http://www.rockler.com/nylo-tape-friction-free-drawer-slide-tape-choose-thickness

Well you see I’m not what you call good words and not a woodworker
By any means
Had a few friends here that recommended this style after I made my first one..
I watch a lot of google images about this style
It’s mainly for the skew cut
And also to use the full with of the blade
If your using a jack plane
Then the angle will definitely help with the cut more easy and more control?
And for The strip I’m using a 6061 aluminum
I have some of them if you like

FYI using iPhone sorry in advance

I use a a shoulder bolt 5/16
I have sown of the Teflon tape
But I decided not to use it
I’m using quarter sawn white oak
And use some wax
Glides nice
Plus the black plastic you see is a hard delrin
Thanks

Nice shooting board and well thought out I like the design and will have to copy it if you don’t mind .
I take it that the white spacer strip is UHMW .
Thanks for posting !

So there are threaded inserts in the base? and the shiny strip at the bottom is aluminum? Thanks for the responses to my queries.
