E. Traditional Hand Tools Series: Shooting Board

Learn the skills and techniques of traditional woodworking while building your very own hand tools, in this ongoing series of workshops.

Primarily used for squaring end grain, the shooting board is essential for dimensioning stock by hand. No dovetail will fit together properly without squared endgrain, so the shooting board is a foundational tool that the students will need if they plan to cut dovetails. Construction of the shooting board will be similar to a bench hook, but with features that create a 90 degree step for a hand plane to rest on, ensuring that the bed of the plane is a perfect right angle from the workpiece. The class is open to students ages 14 and up. Masks and social distancing are required in this and all Sawtooth classes.
