Made from a chunk of 2×6. I sprayed it with shellac and made some replaceable heels.

Nice job!
I’ve made a couple a these but ended up cutting the high point off just seemed to get in the way for me.
I guess I like to push down more than some.

You did a beautiful job on this pusher. Why not make a pusher pretty. Congratulations.

Honestly, I just freehanded this on the wood. I used a forstner bit to hog out the middle of the handle. I then used a round over bit to smooth inside and out. Sanded and shellac. I made the “heels” from mdf. I don’t have a pattern, just the shoe. Thanks and sorry I couldn’t help more.
