I needed a thinner push stick to cut some small strips last night and I got a little creative. She looks great sliding across the table saw, but most importantly, she keeps my fingers out of harm’s way! Make sure any push stick you make is sturdy enough for the job…safety first!

The custom finger grips are very nice !
Overall size ? Solid wood or plywood ?
Such a great idea.

Now that is really cool—may not be totally “correct” but it is our shop after all!

Thanks, LOL…I was hesitant to post it here because it is kinda racy, but I searched and found other projects here with that logo too. I used google images to find the logo, then enlarged it to letter size, so it’s about 8×10 in size. It’s made from some 1/4” MDF that I’ve been trying to use up. The MDF is much sturdier than I thought, but plywood or solid wood would be a better choice.

Has anyone else made a unique push stick? I would like to see other ideas. Someone should do a push stick contest.
