Okay after years of hearing about these are great I finally got my act together and made one. Nothing fancy, made like many of the video tutorials online. I did paint a red stripe on it to make it stand out as not a piece of scrap, 3 coats poly on the rest. Works well and I have a thin rip jig I am working on with a rather large bearing instead of the small ones commonly seen.

Infact, it’s quite fancy and very useful.

What species did you use? Looks like maple maybe.

I was thinking Hickory might make really good feather boards due to it’s extremely high elastic modulus.

This is a well designed feather board.
