    Shooting Board Rev 1 - Done

    I tried to take to heart all the different folks that said "Shooting Boards Ain't Rocket Science". As usual I perused everything I could find and rendered it down to what works best for me.

    Here's a Sketch Up I put together to work from along with the parts for the base. I incorporated a UHMW strip as I had some handy. If it wasn't laying around I would have just shellaced and waxed the ply.

    I used the UHMW strip as a setup block for the dado stack.

    And here's a shot with the parts in place. Ooops! Is that a stealth gloat?

    I need to knock off as I have an early morning tomorrow but I'll try to knock out the fence tomorrow after work.

    No Glenn, that's not a gloat. Male gloats have horns and love to butt people.
    What you have there is a plane---a plane that can't fly, 'cause its got no wings.

    After that I think I should go to bed real early tonight.

    Enjoy,

    Great shooting board Glenn, however, what made you choose this design and not make a ramped one?

    BTW UHMV is some sort of Teflon?
    Best regards,

    Not possible.
    See no guns, no bullets, no bullet holes.

    This is my first one and I haven't bought off on the advantages of ramped shooting boards yet. Being curious I will probably make the next one ramped so I can see for myself what I like ;-)

    Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight material is a polyethylene that is quick slippery and by nature "self lubricating". that is; is retains its slippery-ness as it wears and it wears pretty slowly in the proper application.

    Here's some science that I don't pretend to understand:

    "UHMW is a subset of the thermoplastic polyethylene. It has extremely long chains, with molecular weight numbering in the millions, usually between 2 and 6 million. The longer chain serves to transfer load more effectively to the polymer backbone by strengthening intermolecular interactions."

    Quite right. I have seen them called Chuting Boards as well but, I see no coal???

    Well, I almost made it. Can't make any curly's till the hardwood strip glue dries. Some of the elements I stole from, well . . . , all over, were the UHMW strip and the adjustable fence (fancy piece of scrap).

    This shot (before I glued the hardwood strip in place) shows the small groove for any errant spoil. You can also see the UHMW is about 1/32" higher than the ply where the strip mounts to assure the plane body meets the scrap of mahogany and not the ply.

    The perception of perfection is perfectly clear to everyone else
