Rob Cosman's Shooting Board: 18 inches
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.
As expected, very high quality. Easy to make yourself but just cool to have RC stuff.
I wish I would have bought it sooner!
Quality and accuracy is what makes a difference. This will take you to the next level of woodworking and remove the aggrevation of making your own.
Excellent Quality, Fast Shipping
I expected quality for the price and was not disappointed. The board arrived in approximately 7 days to the US (midwest) and was carefully packaged. It is very well made, square in all respects and just plain looks nice. Has been very smooth and shown no wear through a few smaller projects. A joy to use and have in the shop. 5 star review from a guy who means it.
This just adds one more dimension of quality to my work. I am trying to evolve to using more hand tools and fewer power tools. This is one more step towards that goal.
I have purchased several of Robs products and will purchase more. Every item I have ordered is of excellent quality and the service is outstanding. Thank you.
