Rob Cosman's Mitered Shooting Board
If you do flat miter work then you know how difficult it can be to join two miters and get a perfect 90 degree right angle. My mitered shooting board enables you to create perfect 45 degree miters for that perfect 90 degree joint. Here is why my mitered shooting board works so well:
Made with an MDF base and a Baltic Birch plywood top for stability and long wearing properties.
Formed over a slightly curved mold; the board has a subtle cup on the underside, this keeps the plane standing plumb.
Fence and cleat are made from abuse-resistant and tough tropical hardwood.
Fence glued and screwed to stay secure and at a perfect 45 degrees to the plane.
- Fence does not extend across the entire width of board allowing you to grasp both edges of your stock as it extends past the fence giving you positive control of the stock feed rate into the plane.
- 180 grit emory cloth is adhered to the fence to keep your stock from slipping during the cut.
A small rabbet is cut in the Baltic birch to prevent the blade from cutting the shooting board.
The fence is positioned several inches from the forward edge to keep the plane running straight after cutting your stock.
Available in left and right hand models.
