I copied the design of those two shooting boards from a woodworking magazine.
The second photo shows the miter shooting, say picture frame miter.
The third and the fifth photo shows the dimension the width, say edge grain.
(Naturally, this can be used in squaring as well)
The fourth one shows the end grain miter.
Since the hand plane is supported by two surfaces, it is very stable to plane
and accurate.
Using these shooting boards, my woodworking skill has been improved a lot.

I don’t use shooting boards very often, but it looks like these are either for a left-hander or a pull type plane. Is that right?

Thanks for posting,

Very nice shooting boards, and I really like that plane, looks like a chunk of old 2X4 at first until you
look at the heavy blade and wedge, must feel real nice when using it. Anything that improves woodworking
can not be bad (most of the time). Thank you for sharing.
