I was really struggling with this mostly because I couldn’t figure out how to hold the work while planing the work. Then I remember this:
This is a photo of Chris showing us how to shoot an edge on the bench .. apparently a french method for getting square edges on their boards. Its also a classic picture of Chris hammin’ for the camera.
I wasn’t really wanting to rub my big No. 6 that I use for shooting across my bench top, so I decided to make a longer shooting board. It’s made of 3/4 inch baltic birch plywood with a maple stop. Oh and I put wide Nylo-Tape Friction Free Drawer Slide Tape in the slot where the plane rides.
And wa la square edges!!
