Build a Multi-Purpose Shooting Board with a Mitre Box

A shooting board is one of the most essential tools in the hand-tool workshop. You can use it is clean up and square your edges, which adds another level of precision to your work.

But the shooting board can do even more: when you add a mitre box, then you can not only clean up your edges, you can cut them accurately, too. In short, you go from marking, to cutting, to cleaning up all surfaces in a single tool.

Learn here how you can make your own shooting board with little time and money.

I made this shooting board to give away through Wood by Wright’s Hand Tool Build Off, 2017, which means that if you enter during the month of June 2017, you have a chance to win this actual board.
