Build a shooting board that allows you to rough out case miters on the tablesaw and then plane them to perfection. It starts with a solid, stable base. Add a runway that’s exactly 45° and a fence that’s exactly 90° to the runway, and you are on the way to achieving perfect case miters.

Yes it does, I just built my version yesterday and the first few times you pass the plane through it-the recess is created equal to the projection of the blade. It works just great.
How do you prevent the plane from cutting away at the base or fence? I'm familiar with a regular shooting board where your first swipes initially cut the base and fence as much as your blade protrudes then stops cutting because of your plane sole edge but does this make the same trench initially?
In this video, Matt takes some of the lessons learned in episodes 3 & 4 and builds on them to demonstrate the North Bennet Street method for the half-blind, or half-lapped, dovetails on the toolbox drawers.
