Squaring Ends

The shooting-board is used for squaring ends, but if the wood is too wide or too heavy to be held on the board then the ends will have to be shot in the vice and checked against a long try-square. The practice of nicking off the far corner to prevent the grain splintering out is not to be recommended, and it is advisable to learn how to use the try-plane in both directions, leading with the left hand, reversing the plane and leading with the right. An alternative method is to cramp/clamp a block at the far corner to support the grain, and a similar scrap piece is sometimes necessary when squaring ends on the shooting-board.
