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.

Want to know if your workpiece is truly square?

So, there I was, watching Rob’s video on making a shooting board. Followed along, thought I did everything well for my first time making one. Used my own for a few months. Then started noticing that what I was squaring up... well it wasn’t quite as square as I though it could be. So... I wanted to see what it was like to shoot a workpiece and have really square material come off of it. Ended up buying this shooting board. Received it in, tried shooting a workpiece. The difference was significant. This thing is deadly accurate. Precision even. Want to know how it feels to have a truly square piece of stock come off a shooting board? Buy one of Rob’s shooting boards.

Got mine today! 5 days earlier than expected to the US! Perfectly square and beautifully made! Almost too nice to use :) But I will for sure

Another top quality product from a top quality craftsman

I've bought a few items from Bob Cosman and I've been consistently impressed with the thought and the effort he's invested in creating products that represent a lifetime of learning. I've used a shooting board before -- I even made one -- but the shooting board Bob has designed is outstanding, and it is manufactured to the exacting standards you'd expect from a master woodworker and an exceptional educator. If Cosman puts his name on it, you can be assured that it's everything he says it is. It's a pleasure dealing with an honest man. Thanks, Bob. Dennis Gilbert, Dexter, Mich.
