Fine-tune miters at any angle
A shop-made shooting board and hand plane work great to trim miters to a single precise angle. But the head of Lee Valley’s new shooting board locks at any angle, with detents at 0°, 18°, 22.5°, 25.7°, 30°, 36°, 45°, and 60°. The board comes with everything except the plane and an auxiliary wood fence that you provide. Your shooting plane rides on a UHMW track, with an adjustable rail to prevent the plane from pushing away from the workpiece. (Remove this rail to use a regular bench plane.) You can also buy just the fence/head and make your own shooting board.
Veritas adjustable shooting board no. 05P54.90 (right hand) or 05P54.91 (left hand), $199; fence alone, no. 05P54.85, $109 Lee Valley 800-871-8158, leevalley.com
