Fine-tune miters at any an­gle

WOOD - - 2018 WOOD MAGAZINE INNOV8 AWARDS -

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
