Re: Skew Infill Shooting Plane - Finished - Almost

At the risk of being rude to the shoot board crowd..

... anything other than cheap shoot boards is a complete waste of money. Someone could say the same about my plane, BUT, it's a hard case to make when you're building your own. Spending two or three grand on a plane like this would be a complete indulgence, but I used it some more last night and it lives up to that.

I place far more value on the 24 inch starrett try square that I found for $60 shipped. It makes making these throw-away large shoot boards a snap.

(without the desire to make a plane, I would generally plane the end off of even the board shot in the video. It takes me less time, as long as it's marked, and a board like this set low in the vise is easy to plane with a stanley 4. It's the tiny stuff that's a trick, especially mitered, but a model maker would probably cut and sand those little bits).

So, yeah, the $400 shoot board market makes no sense to me. It's limiting and it takes the focus off of the work and developing skills. Just like all of the sawing gadgets.
