since I got a push type plane (low angle jack plane), two shooting boards are newly made.
magnet saw guides are made since I have been tempted by the video I found on Youtube
I am afraid that you may not be interested in these projects because of nothing new idea involved
But I just want to show my effort to move to hand tool oriented for the time being.

You made them your way, and as long as you are satisfied with the results, then you have some winners.

Being happy with your work, making your own tooling at a much lower price than buying something already made. All of those are measures of success.

Thanks for posting. Now use them to make a nice project.

Its always interesting seeing other woodworkers work. Many of us are newbies to woodwork and seeng projects like this on the home page will always pull somebody like me in to see what it is. Whilst I know what a shooting board is and have yet to make one, I always want to see what others have done so that I can pick up ideas and inspiration.

Nice job !!!

Looks like a very nice job, I would be interested to go watch the video you used to reference your jigs.
It would inspire more of us to maybe also build some of these beauties.
