Thanks for asking this question Ralph. I had to look it up (Yahoo) to find out what it was. A handy devise. I will have to build me one. :confused:

I will not answer the question because I did have to go to the Internet to find out what a "Donkey's Ear" was.

Bill, I like your answer! :-D

It gives someplace for the flys to land and not bug you when you are drinking your COLD beer at the end of the day.

Rog

PS. I really don't have a clue on what you are talking about. Incase you hadden't guessed. :-D

Isn't it a form of shooting board for working with miters? I seem to remember a demonstrator at our local woodworking store mentioning them. I can't remember what distinguishes them from other shooting boards or how they are used though.

Like Chuck I had to look it up. But how does it differ from just a shooting board?

Dennis,

As I read the explanation a shooting board is at 90º while a donkey ear is at 45º. I am not sure if other degree boards (IE 22.5º) are considered donkey ears also. I am awaiting wiser heads to advise me of this.

I was on the forum when Ralph asked the question.
I had to google for the answer.
