I watched a couple of doug stowe’s dvd’s on box and small cabinet making and took a liking to the push stick he uses. It looks comfortable to use and looks like it gives you a lot of control.
So I emailed him and asked if he had a diagram or drawing so I could make a few to try out.
He was nice enough to send me a diagram and he posted it on his blog as well so others can utilize the design.
I carefully made a master template out of 1/4” baltic birch plywood and then proceeded to make 4 push sticks from some 3/4” baltic birch plywood scraps I had. The way I made my template allows for easy pattern routing as I didn’t include the heel. I used 1/4” baltic birch plywood scraps to make those and just glued them in place.
All the edges except for the bottom are rounded over with a 1/4” radius roundover bit, then I gave them a quick sanding with 150 grit to smooth everything out. A hole for hanging completes them.
I really like this design, and kudos to Doug for sharing it.
One will be kept close by the table saw and router table for sure.
