Jeff, I use a shooting board ALOT. I never get the first long grain squared up on the shooting board (SB). I get it squared with a jointer plane and a long straight edge to make sure that edge is good to go. Once I have that done, I use the shooting board to square both end grain sides (using a square to ensure everything is correct. Once those are square, I will square up the other long grain side.

Also, you must ensure your fence on the SB is square. ABSOLUTELY square. If not, it will cause an awful lot of aggravation (been there, done that!)

Here is a pic of mine, it is a workhorse in my shop.
