push stick

When I teach, students want to make a tracing of the push stick that I use. In addition a reader noted my use of it  in one of my DVDs and asked for the design.  I had seen a pushstick of similar design, made one and found it useful as the placement of the handle allowed me to apply downward force to the front end of the stock. It also keeps the hands well clear of the cut.

Here is the design, so you can make one yourself.

I prefer to make these from good quality plywood, and rout the edges smooth with a 1/4 in. roundover bit.

You can help Clear Spring School get a new school bus to help with off-campus learning experiences. Vote Here, once each day for the next 10 days. We are a very small school competing against much larger schools with many more folks to vote, and yet our educational mission is important to all and to the future of American education.

Make, fix and create...
