The newest contributor the our little project we like to call 360 WoodWorking is the incomparable, Ron Herman. If you are unfamiliar with Ron then you’ve been missing out on one of the greatest woodworking resources in the country today. As a master housewright, toolwright and carpenter, Ron shares his extensive knowledge and experience with woodworkers nationwide.
Ron grew up around woodworking — his Columbus, Ohio based family business has been in existence for more than 100 years. He served a formal apprenticeship that eventually lead to becoming a master.
In this week’s article release subscribers learn how to make their own shooting board to help increase their accuracy in the workshop. Ron shows how to accurately tune and use the board as well as gives pointers on how to use it for much more than squaring the end of a board. Subscribers also learn about a variety of other shop-made shooting boards for specific uses in the shop or on the job-site.
Below you’ll find the first part of Ron’s video on making a shooting board. If you’d like to see the rest, and learn more about shooting boards, subscribing to 360 WoodWorking is the way to do it.
