Kenny's Shooting Board

One of my favorite things to post is projects that members of our group have built.  Last month at our Atlanta meeting Kenny Boatwright questioned me about creating accurate miters.  There are many techniques that can be used to get the results he was looking for but y suggestion was using a shooting board.  Kenny e-mailed me over the weekend to share pictures of his shooting board that he has built since the meeting. 

The design was based off of the shooting board that built a few months ago and can be seen here High Rock Woodworking: Shooting a Shooting Board.   Kenny also added a few great attachments base on David Charlesworth, David's books and videos can be found at his site David Charlesworth.  The project turned out great and he is now looking for a plane to use with it.  The only suggestion that I mentioned to Kenny was to add block on the downward 45 attachment to be used as a rest to keep the board square. 

To me this is what we are about helping each other by sharing our knowledge with woodworkers new to the craft and in the process learn ourselves.  To be a part of Modern Woodworkers Association just e-mail me or one of our other administrators on our contacts page and we will be more than glad to answer any questions. 

Have a project you want to share? Send us a picture and we will post it for the rest of the group to see.

Great job Kenny and thank you for sharing!  Keep up the good work....

  2. Thanks Bill. It was actually a lot of fun to build.

  3. That's a nice shooting board, Kenny. I hope you find a nice plane to go with it.
