I know there not much, but as few of you know the back-yard remodel has taken me out of the shop. A Buddy of mine just got a table saw for his ongoing house remodel. I thought WOW, I can make something real quick out of the wood he gave me from when his father passed away. One is beech wood the other purple heart. I missed the saw dust!!!! LOL Fancy wood for push sticks I know, but he gave me a crate full & it was the least I could do.

I guess that is the problem with doing as good of a job on a tool / jig as you did. the first scratch you get on them makes you want to cry!

Excellent tools! Definitely look better than store bought.

Those are very nice. However, I know I would never want to use them. I would probably display them. My pushsticks often get nicked. That’s what they are for. Much better to nick a pushstick than to nick a finger.

Nice. I just use scrap and cut a notch in the end :)
I would be afraid to use those, they are too pretty.

Thx guys, These were from scraps that were left over from things I made with the wood my buddy gave me. As mentioned before his father was a minister and wood-worker and gave me a crate of exoctic wood he left him, so I want to make something that would remind him of his father. 3/4 inch seems to fit nicely….

Had to make something, I miss you guys!!!! Backyard remodel almost done! LOL
