I hand carved this pusher out of maple ply with a Bosch jigsaw and am holding it.

that is real primal
made a few myselfbut round the other endso my palm doesn’t get puncturedin the event of a pinch or throwback
much better than a thin stick for pushing

I can’t believe you didn’t make it out of rosewood! Or ebony! I’m a little disappointed in you. :)
I’m bored tonight too!

Did this require Sketchup or a series of rough drafts first to bring this to reality….....................

To be honest, I think this is plagiarism. It looks a lot like mine! I guess I should have copyrighted it.

Vonhagen:If you don’t mind, I would like to copy your design in making myself one of these.
Of course, in order to round off the back edge, I’ll need to buy some carving gouges, number 16 bent Ashley Iles should do it I think. Then I’m also going to have to buy a good fret saw for cutting the shape, and a few Flexcut knives for chip carving my initials, and of course some good inlay tools from Lie Nielsen.Too bad I already have a band saw, this would have been a good excuse to get one. Well, maybe it’s a reason for more bandsaw blades.I really like this project, it’s going to be fun to build. Thanks for the idea.

@old tool, yes you can copy it and you must go get those tools if your really want it as nice as mine but i do have a secret tool that lives in the pond by the golf course and it does beaver cuts. its just like having a cnc carver, you just throw it in the water and he brings it back all done but it cost me some willow branches and a jar of raspberry jelly.

Hmmm, my jig saw is already packed (getting ready to move) but perhaps I could just chew some chunks out of the wood myself.
Oooh Oooh, then I’d also have a “notched” glue spreader! Yeah man! TWO TOOLS IN ONE!
THANKS for the inspiration!

I know I only have less than 10 years woodworking experience and I see you have over 30, so I guess I better wait a few years before attempting anything at this level of craftmanship. Maybe I should favorite this so I’ll have something to refer back to when I feel ready.
