A commercial shooting board alone could cost over $400. As a woodworker, I think it’s a better deal for me to spend the money on a set of shooting plane (PM-V11) and track and build my own shooting jig.

The Veritas track has a built-in dust chute on the base – http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=72048&cat=1,230,41182.

After several hours of shop time—distracted by the continual visits of a neighbor’s kid and her dog, Molly—I have got a new precision jig (16” x 19”).

Construction notes:

Instead of installing the track butt against the top board (as shown in the user manual), I mounted the track with its inside edge flush with the top board by cutting a narrow rabbet underneath the top board.

For shooting miters, I use this jig: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/178938
The old shooting board (for use with the LAJ) can be seen in the doggie picture.
