Well, I have been busy in the shop procrastinating on projects, but cranking out shop aids left and right. I have more fun building tools than furniture. It’s probably due to the fact that once the furniture is done, its out the door while shop projects are always there to look at and use.
For this suped up push stick I used walnut for the base and handle. For the handle, I copied my Disston backsaw shape. The body is 1/8” baltic birch plywood that is held to the base with three 1/4” bloodwood plugs, and attached to the handle with brass split nuts. The back of the base has a dovetail slot that holds the replaceable heel. I finished this one with BLO, and beeswax.
