I made mine from 3/4” scrap and a piece of 1/4” hardboard it actually straddles the fence sliding along with no side to side play the right side and the top are 3/4” material glued and screwed together and the left side (between the fence and blade) is 1/4” hardboard that is only screwed on and has a notch cut out to form a small heel at the back, then I installed a handle that is above the rip fence so my hand is away from the blade. The pusher is approx 10” long and the blade side of the unit can be changed out with thicker material for different cuts but honestly, I have never felt the need to replace the hardboard. With the small hook and the length of the pusher I find that I have good control of the stock as I push past the blade and my hand is safely on top of the center of the rip fence. This setup works for cuts all the way down to 1/4”.
