Case Side Miter Shooting Board


High-end woodworking case side miter shooting board, also known as donkey ear shooting board, enables high repeatability and precision of mitered case ends, and helps ensure clean and well-aligned joints like secret mitered dovetails.

What’s included

The Case Side Miter Shooting Board is made of cabinet-quality ApplePly Cherry plywood, and as a result, it will withstand warping, and provide longevity. The Case Side Miter Shooting Board's platform is 18" x 12 and is able to shoot 16" wide case miters. The Miter Shooting Board's rails are made of cherry. It weighs approximately 9 pounds. The Miter Shooting Board comes with a cleat, and can, therefore, be used as a bench hook or to clamp into a leg vise.

Hand Planes

The Case Side Miter Shooting Board is used with a number of hand planes. Stanley, Veritas, Lie-Nielsen, and others all work. It is particularly performant with the Lie-Nielsen #51 and the Veritas shooting plane; it will even work with a block plane for small pieces.


The Miter Shooting Board is finished with two coats of Tried and True Varnish Oil, a zero VOC penetrating linseed oil with a pine resin finish, therefore providing scratch-resistance and durability over time.



Another primary feature of the Miter Shooting Board is the 45-degree front track. That track prevents the hand plane from losing skewing above or below 45 degrees. Consequently as with any hand tool approach, precision is dependent on your technique.
