After spending time with a number of different push stick/ blocks, ending up for the most part just grabbing a scrap of pine ( 2×4) so I thought I would make something that was pleasing to the eye and a good conversation pice for any guest I might have in the shop.

Here is a link to the video

Enjoy!

It’s obvious you have talent! Unfortunate you use it to push women around. :(

Nice push stick, but I think it’s backwards, The tilt for your hand should go the other way to be comfortable.
IMHO.

Hi Rich
Welcome to LJs
In spite of the Artwork, I know I’m not following the trend here,but this looks like it’s tilting the wrong way for safe use and the opening where you put your hand seems pretty small.

Thank you for the Welcome, as far as the hand hold it has plenty of room ( just shy of a average handsaw handle ) you can check out the video on you tube to get abetter feel of the size. http://youtu.be/9edVrY-RFg4

The tilt is forward to give a better pushing action along with holding the work piece down all the way throughout the cut

dude, you gotta post a pattern. The safety of hundreds, perhaps thousands depend on it. I have a sawstop and I still need one. ;-)
