Morning all
I'm making some boxes with Burl Oak and decided to cut miters and insert a hardwood key (3) but I need to make a shooting board.

The image below is the design I've decided to go with BUT I'm open to other designs

Image

So please help me decide what is the best way forward

Thank you for your time

I made one recently, detailed on this thread which works superbly. It's based on one made by Mitch Peacock on his UToob channel and is an enhancement of the original Robert Wearing design - Rob

I designed this one over a decade ago ...

It is adjusted for square via the fence at the end, plus it has adjustable feet, which enables it to be fine tuned to perfection ...
