Hi Dave,

1/2″ or 3/4″ ply is fine for shooting board material, but be sure to leave the landing wide enough to carry your shooting plane, with at least an 8″ bearing on the upper tier for materials being trimmed. 🙂

The upper tier width – as well as board size in general – can be varied to suit the dimensions of stock you’ll typically find yourself shooting.
