Finger-Saving Push Blocks
Put the pushsticks to use
Paired with a feather board, Carol's narrow-stock pushstick [Photo A] helps you control small pieces. The vertical pushstick [Photo B] supports the ends of tall pieces.
"I use this handle design at my tablesaw and jointer, too," Carol advises. After you chew up the sole and heel, send it through the jointer and attach new pieces.
"And don't think of just 3/4"-thick material," Carol says. "I have safely routed thinner stock with 3/8" pushsticks and a little heel."
