I’ve recently discovered Paul Sellers blog and I’m quickly becoming a fan! I love his no-nonsense woodworking approach. He tells me my Harbor Freight bar clamps are good enough for almost everything! Anyway, he’s got an interesting shooting board design. Check it out here . It uses wedges! It’s made out of left over 3/4” oak ply. I like that it incorporates both a 90 and two 45 degree going both ways. And to top it off is has a cleat like a bench hook would. I’m going to lay down some left over laminate in the “track” and I’ll put the other 45 degree in if I ever see the point.
I made this for the six 32” x 21” picture frames I’m making for Christmas. More on that later. I’ve always wanted on of these. Can’t believe I waited this long. I use it with my Stanley 5 1/2 which works quite well. I wrap my hand around the front knob and lay my arm on top and us my shoulder the throw the plane forward. It’s hefty enough that it just flies right through.
If you haven’t made one of these – it will change your woodworking! Like when you discover that all pencils are inaccurate. If you don’t like your design – try this one! Only took me about a half and hour and I only used hand tools. Thank for looking!
