I was inspired by the video Tom (mot) posted about shooting boards and decided it was time to make one of my own. It’s 12” x 17” has 2 layers of 3/4” Birch ply with a 3” runway. The fence and hook are 1 3/4” x 3/4” walnut. No glue, just screws. I promised myself I’d plug the screw holes, but i bet if you ask me in a couple years if they are filled the answer will be no….
What are your thoughts on finishing these things? maybe just wax for ease of use and slight protection?
Thanks for the inspiration Tom! I’ve got the parts cut for a bevel ramp so that will be next! Then a miter fence.
as a side note….. this is another one of those tools (i guess it’s a tool) like the card scraper that is so simple in function but is such a joy to use and makes the process fun!
