Raised-Panel Pushing Jig

I really liked your technique for making simple raised-panel doors for the pine hutch in issue #147 (page 67). I've been using a similar technique for some time, and my panel-pushing jig, shown below, makes it safe and easy to cut the beveled edge on the panels.

The jig raises the pressure point on the panel, holding it tightly against the fence, and protects my fingers from the blade. I used biscuits to join the runners to the jig, but you also could dado the jig and glue the runners into place. (Note that the runners should be taller than the blade height.)

I like this! I think I'll cut a set of dado's for the runners instead of using biscuits.

Great idea, I made one and use it often. I modified my design slightly by fastening a piece of scrap to the rear end of the sled to push the stock. I made it tall enough, and long enough to accommodate varying size pieces. I feel the greater height provides more alignment surface.
