  1. It's been awhile since I received my LN Shooting Plane, and I finally decided to build a shooting board for this plane. It's basically built from the plans that LN sent me to go with the shooting board, the only thing I really modified was the overall length to fit my arm length and the width of my bench. Parts of the shooting board cut and ready to assemble. I used Baltic Birch for both layers of the board. And also some scrap cherry for the stop block and a piece of walnut for the outer fence. I slotted the outer fence by drilling a series of small holes and then filing to straighten each slot up. Screwed the pieces together to form the main table. Planed one side of the stop block perfectly flat, this will be the edge that any board that I am shooting will rest up against, I am looking for perfection in this surface. Then pre-drilled holes and screwed the stop block at 90° to the table/base. The big holes are the counter sink. I also mounted a stop block at the bottom end of the shooting board, it's the same principle as a bench hook. It'll hook over the edge of my bench and resist the forward force as I plow the plane through the board on up. Right after I installed the slotted outer fence mama came out with a plate of cheese and crackers, just thought I'd include it in the image. Some big Triscets and Gouda, man she must of read my mind, it was perfect. Been married for almost 30 yrs, I guess you could say we know each other pretty good by now. You'll also see to the right of the first board, there is a groove cut about an 1/8" deep, that groove catches dust, dust does build up when cutting end grain. And the theory is it will rest in the groove and not clog up the table. So the first trial board went OK. As you can see the stop block is angled away at the top now, I had my iron set incorrectly, the board end was perfectly square, but there was a bevel on the end. I adjusted the iron and not long I had a perfectly square end board, and not beveled. I really love this shooting plane, and board. In both images top and bottom, the long shavings are from the long grain, I turned the board 90° and shot the long grain, that was handy too. The shorter shavings are the end grain. Thank you for following me along folks in my adventures these days. I had a great time building this, took about and hour an a half, and now I have a pretty nice shooting board. I'll need to cut out some 45° blocks so I can shoot some 45 angles for picture frame joinery, and a "Birdhouse" fixture for shooting flat miters for box making. Cheers!
  2. Well I did it. I finally pulled the trigger and landed me one of my dreams, one of my bucket list purchases. Yes, this is a tool gloat, and I am anxiously awaiting my new LN No. 51 Shoot Board Plane to arrive in the mail this Tuesday. I was going to wait till I got her in my hands, then gloat, but my gloating is pushing through my brain right now and I need to let is loose or I'll explode. A few years ago I saw and used a beautiful example of a Stanely No. 51 Shooting Board Plane and I have wanted one ever since. The main drawback of course is the price of the old Stanely Shooting Planes range from 800 bucks on up depending on the condition. I have some planes right now that would work as a shooter, but I really want a dedicated set up, in other words, I am spoiling myself. Here is an old Stanely No. 51 going for around $875.00 and that's a great price for it in the great condition it's in! Here is a fine example of a No. 52 with a hard to find Stanley Shooting Board for around $2000.00 The LN No. 51 for $500.00 and I feel it's a better tool as well, finely machined, a nice 9lbs in weight to plow through the grain, and less expensive than the originals. I looked at Veritas, they have a beautiful example of a Shooting Plane as well but I really like the traditional concept of the Stanley that LN produces. Tuesday, will be my big day, when I get home from my day job and see that box sitting in my shop, mama will receive it and she just throws anything I get in the mail on my work bench, I hope she places this one on the bench and not her usual toss. So that's it folks, my big gloat of the year, it's not often we get something new in the old shop, this is special, and I can't wait to make my own shooting board, already have some pretty good plans for them, and a long grain shooting board as well for accurately planing the long edge of boards. So cool! Links Lie Nielsen Shooting Board Plane My original topic on this plane at Thank you for putting up with my gloat.

  5. Anyone know where to find info on the making of a Donkey’s ear for use with a shooting board. Searches on you tube and google were not productive. Needed for shooting wider miters. Thanks in advance.
