Why So Serious?

I was having a conversation about shooting boards today. Some folks just go too far with the fancy.

There are times when I might go for something with a much longer fence, but for day to day, this one does just fine. The 90 and 45 are accurate, but short enough that a little bow in the molding won't ruin your day. The whole thing is small enough to be easily put away.

Low angle jack plane has mouth wide open, but blade set for minimal projection. That lets it take big bites down to 45, but make fine adjustments when care is needed.
