Shooting Board Illustration by James Provost SUPPLY CHECKLIST3/4" ply1/4" plyscrap hardwood2 cam clamps (optional) Sanding is one way to remove these marks, but you risk rounding over those crisp edges.
Another way is to work the edges with a card scraper -a bit of a nuisance, particularly on a long board, or half a dozen of them.However, with a well-tuned hand plane and a shooting board you can quickly and accurately true and smooth the edges and ends of boards.
Shooting boards come in various sizes.In many shops you will find two: a long shooting board for edge grain, and a shorter version for trimming end grain.Making the JigMake this jig from almost any sheet goods, or from solid wood.
