This is from the latest issue of ShopNotes, issue 113. I had a couple of hours of down time last night while a waiting on a glue-up and thumbed through the latest issue. Low and behold, just what I need! I was in the process of thinking though how I was going to modify my shooting board for 45’s, it would only do 90’s, when I read this.
Dirt simple to make and simple enough to use. The hardest part was making the knobs.
I made mine from all MDF. Not the best choice in the world but I had a couple off cuts cluttering up the shop and I need the room!
Changes form the plan: I don’t like the cleat on the bottom. The article calls for the board to be clamped in a vise. Now you’re back to having an old ball fixture that you can’t set anywhere because the tops not flat nor the bottom. I’ll add a cleat just like I did to my bench hook so that I can hang it on my French Cleat System.
Thanks for looking.
