Making Shooting Boards
I'll be teaching a weekend course 'success with bench planes' at West Dean College http://www.westdean.org.uk/WestDeanHomepage.aspx
This is the first time I've run this course so I need to get things ready. Here's a stack of long shooting boards ready for action.
Add on mitre guides for pictures frames and box sides also had to be made from good quality multi ply.
This is the picture frame attachment in use.
This is the 'donkeys ear' attachment for shooting box sides.
The shooting board being used to true up an edge with an antique Stanley No 6 fitted with a Hock blade.
My version of the 'hot dog' handle which makes things more comfortable.
The course runs from the 10th - 12th May, 7 booked, 3 more places left.
