Shop-Made Shooting Board | Woodworking Project | Woodsmith Plans

Shop-Made Shooting Board

This must-have jig allows you to take whisker-thin shavings off the end of a workpiece to fine-tune the fit of a joint.

The reason a shooting board is a must-have for the shop is it allows you to take a paper-thin shaving off the end of a workpiece with a hand plane — something that’s just about impossible to do with a tool like a table saw or miter saw. And the optional sanding “plane” slides along the base to fit a joint or simply sand a surface smooth.

  • 7 printable (digital) pages of detailed step-by-step instructions
  • 25 full-color photos, illustrations and exploded views
