Topic tags/keywords: tip jig push stick jigsaw

We love working with wood and we love all the woodworking YouTube channels out there. So we decided to start our own channel. Take a look at our second project. Our goal was to combine things we love (foxes) we things we need (push stick). What do you think?

Might be cute, but not for use in my shop. Sorry. No forward holding capabilities.

Essentially a longer “foot” on the push stick to increase surface contact on the board. The board can not pivot up and overall you keep better control over the piece of stock.

So what do you think about this updated design? I tried to address the issue. It’s probably still not as big as other push sticks out there but much cuter. :D

Nice, but cute never prevented a TS accident.

You could have the fox on its belly, paws extended, rear haunches in the air. The tail could still be the push handle.

Seems like you need to work on making the grip more ergo-dynamic. Needs to be more open, more along the lines of the grip on TravisH’s. (which is exactly like the ones I use)

And my hands aren’t Trumpishly small, but that tail looks too fat for a good wrap around grasp.

Maybe leave the “cute” out. Make a push stick and print or carve a Fox on it?

Push sticks, at least how I use them, don’t last long. They always get cut up when ripping thin stock. It takes me a minute or less to make another push stick as needed. I don’t need to spend 15 minutes+ to make one. If you have nothing better to do with your time, go for it.

I can’t quite do it in a minute or less but I did make a template that has the correct angle for what I prefer. Takes a few minutes to make a quick run and have extra. That being said I do have ones 1 1/2 inches and larger that I did finish nicely but they have replaceable bottoms so again easy enough to make a new one.
