Make a Safe and Easy Pushblock for Your Table Router

pushblock

To keep fingers safely away from your bit when routing, use a pushblock. You easily can make your own from a 34 " x 4" x 4" piece of medium-density fiberboard and a 4" length of 12 " dowel glued into a hole drilled in the center of the block. Other benefits: The pushblock lets you easily guide the workpiece while keeping it tight against the fence. It also serves as a backer to avoid chip-out.
