    I feel sure I am being very dumb but I am having trouble with the layout of the shooting board video that Paul did on the site.

    I have measured back 5 inches and marked the 90 degree line.

    I follow the next bit about splitting the distance which is 14 inches and divided this into two giving 7 inches.

    Now I start getting lost. I assume the next mark, the first 45 degree line is at the 7 inch mark. After that I have totally lost it. Where to mark the next 45 degree line come back an inch? What?? Help???

    Has anyone got a drawing of the layout a photo maybe, or could someone please explain
    Thank you

    hi after your first 45 degree line (which goes toward the 90 degree line you made) go back to your 7″ mark and mark another line about 1″ up toward the 90 degree line and turn your square over so you aree now marking a line away from the 90 degree line toward the left of the board and then set the board aside as you will mark the other lines from your wedges as and when you have cut them off the the thicker stock if you are still not sure let me know and i will send a picture i hope this helps not hinders 🙂

    Please find Gregory Merrit his outstanding drawing of Pauls shooting board in attachement.
    Somewhere on the forum, there should be a thread about it, but I couldn’t find it.


    Thanks Eddy and Bert you have saved me from going mad. I really do appreciate the time and effort that you have taken. It means I can play with wood tonight much better than a night in front of the TV.
    Brilliant thanks guys

    Thanks for this. I was wondering the dimensions myself. I was going to wing it and I’m sure it would have been fine, but this drawing helps. Thanks bertd for posting and thanks to Gregory Merrit for the drawing.
