Fig. 124. do your work well. This board must have a rabbet or groovecut out of the upper piece, as shown, to give room for shavings.In Fig. 123 the top board overlaps the ends of the cleats a trifle,which (with the spaces between the cleats) allows the escape ofthe shavings. Arrange some way to hold the board firmly onthe bench. Care is necessary in using the shooting-board not toplane slices from your left hand. Guides, to attach to the planeto ensure square edges, can be bought and used instead of theshooting-board. Some of them are serviceable, particularly those adjustable at variousangles. A ?niire shooting-board (Fig. 125) is alsouseful. It requires tobe made with evenmore care than theboard just given, buton the same principle.The angular stop orstops must be fittedto make the angles ex-actly 45°. A sawed mitre holds glue better than a planed mitre,but sawed mitres often require trimming with the plane to geta perfect fit.
