This is a shooting board for my Lie-Neilsen #9 Miter Plane. It’s about 14.5” x 9.5”. It only took a couple of hours to make including glue drying time. The base board and upper board are cherry and the stop is maple. I laminated a left over piece of MicroDot Formica onto the runway to reduce friction. I also put a piece of 220 grit self adhesive sand paper onto to stop to better hold the workpiece. It’s unfinished. Thanks go out to Alf who has a great section on shooting boards on her website, The Cornish Workshop, and to LJ Derek Cohen who has built some excellent slanted shooting boards that are shown on his site, In the Woodshop. I built this shooting board with a straight upper board and a fixed stop. I’ll eventually build another with a slanted upperboard and an adjustable stop along with accessories as Derek suggests. Five photos are certainly overkill for a simple shooting board, but I like the way it looks particularly compared to the plywood one I’d been using.
