Shooting board
Made to fit the bench, a table or the Festool MFT

The other day I was annoyed that I had to plane some end grain, and had no shooting board.
I wanted a little board that I can bring with me when needed, with a 45 degree function also, and that will work with a little low angel 60,5 blockplane, and a normal no.3 or 4 handplane.

This is the pictures from my Small shooting board blog.

Hope it can be to some inspiration, or even a shooting board…

Best thoughts, MaFe

Your going to just adore having this in the shop, I can’t tell you how much mine stay in use. Plenty of time you need to just twick something to fit and this size shooting board and a small block plane is the ticket. A great work bench compliment, enjoy and stay safe…BC

MaFe:
I have a small shooting board which has been very handy. I like your 45 degree set up much better than mine. I think I’ll steal the idea if you don’t mind. Thanks for posting.

Very nice. I can see where that will come in handy. I had never heard of a shooting board before. I learned something new today. Now I can go to bed!!

Hi guys,
Thank you for the comments.
Blackcherry: yes, I’m sure you are right, it was a dream to use when I tested it.
Gary: go ahead, when I put stuff here, it’s really in the hope others can use the layouts, so I’ll be much more than happy.
Jim: yes you must make one when you get of the lathe (I just got some HSS irons for my lathe today, so now I look forward to some serious turning).
Armand: Thank you.
Woodfix: perhaps one day, I’ll do some real woodworking… Perhaps my project are just to make a wonderful workshop…
Best thoughts to all of you,
Mads
