ok so tha basic story is, someone who owns a table saw, happens to be a chick, is too chicken to run it, so after watching a wood whisperer videpo on table saw safety 1 of them caught my eye, it kept down pressure toward the front of the wood and seemed real safe and theory sounded great so i grabbed a bunch of tiny scraps and started making the handle, and i found a perfect scrap from a leg idea i was making for my table that still is not done…lol its just hiding in the back corner for awhile any ways it works great and looks pretty good to, i think i spent 90% of my day glueing and maybe an hour shaping but after seeing the end result i probly should have put a lil more time into the shaping and finishing..theres always the next 1 tho ;)

I think I saw a unique push stick Keith made that had the same principle.

Bob this is a very nice push stick. Is the handle interchangeable? All of my push sticks are ugly so when I run them into the saw I don’t feel so bad. :+}
