Comments on: Mitre Shooting Board http://www.theunpluggedwoodshop.com/mitre-shooting-board.html Woodworking instruction, videos, projects and inspiration. Tue, 19 Aug 2014 13:57:05 +0000 hourly 1 By: tom http://www.theunpluggedwoodshop.com/mitre-shooting-board.html#comment-348542 Wed, 02 Jul 2014 10:47:50 +0000 http://www.theunpluggedwoodshop.com/?p=4565#comment-348542 Thanks for the question. I didn’t house the ramps, but the middle area is built up, so it’s almost like a self-housing by design. It works either way. If you house the end ramps it will be indestructible- but difficult to adjust if/when need be.
All the best-

Do you house the end ramps into the base? That instruction was in the original article, but I could not tell on yous.

For one that could perfectly chamfer a piece the length of your bench (best done with a bevel up jack) check out this method – look for the “moxon miter ramp” post:

I made one about twenty years ago, from plans in Bob Waring’s book on Jigs and woodworking essentials. Works well, but demands accurate working to make it properly.

If I understand you correctly, you’re saying that while you shoot the miter the work is shifting side to side in the jig? I haven’t experienced this in mine and not sure why this would be- If the work is being help tight against the fence and sufficient pressure is applied to the piece, then there shouldn’t be any movement at all. Maybe a dull plane iron or too heavy a cut is being made? I’ll post a video sometime in the future with the miter shooting board in use- perhaps this will demonstrate the technique in use and resolve any problems you may be having.
all the best
Tom

Mine worked out really well too- I meant to do an update but time hasn’t been kind lately! I’ve been using mine with both my dedicated miter plane but my bevel-up Jack also works really good in it too.
all the best and thanks again for the update. ; )

I made my own version with Cherry ends and a piece of leftover Redheart for a top guide the other night. I really took my time getting those angles correct. It’s paid off, bigtime. I glued up a test box that has tighter miters than I’ve ever achieved before. It’s seriously the most stoked I’ve been about a bench appliance since I found out about bench hooks ten years ago. Now I’m considering saving up for a dedicated shooting plane to go along with all of my groovy shooting boards. The wife thanks you for that last thing, BTW.
