In my shop the shooting board is standard equipment.  Once you learn to sharpen and use a hand plane, a good shooting board will do more to increase the accuracy of your work than any other tool or shop implement.  Here is why mine works so well:

  • Made with an MDF base and a Baltic Birch plywood top for stability and long wearing properties.

  • Formed over a curved mold, the board has a subtle cup on the underside, this keeps the plane standing plumb.

  • Fence and cleat made from abuse-resistant and tough tropical hardwood.

  • Fence glued and screwed to stay secure and square.

  • Rabbet cut in Baltic birch to prevent plane from cutting shooting board.

  • Fence positioned several inches from the rear to keep plane running straight.

  • Available in left and right hand models.

  • Available in two sizes, 24" x 12" and 18" by 12".

If you prefer to buy rather than build, let us send you one that is ready to use.

Perfect

I work solely with hand tools and no longer have my full shop. Small elegant pieces are now what I do on a small custom workbench that I made over 4 decades ago. I have done iterations of shooting boards through the years and one thing that always plagued me was being out of plum. I came across Rob Cosman's videos one evening and enjoyed his engaging manner of explaining his process...His crowned shooting boards were a "duh" moment for me and instead of building one, I decided to order one as a small thank you for his videos. Well about 30 minutes after ordering, he called and left a message on my voice mail...That's pretty good customer service, I suppose Canadian days must have like extra hours in them, eh. Anyway, the shooting board has been very well used over the last couple weeks with everything from my jointer to my block planes. The (Osage Orange?) fence is dead square and the board tracks plum. The board has good heft and stays flat on the bench, whether clamped at the cleat or not. This is a great tool and does exactly what it is supposed to do with no worries about it becoming temperamental and developing an out of square personality. Thanks Rob Cosman and the folks who make these...very well done! Christine
