Make a Table Saw Push Block
Updated: Nov 1, 2020
Bryan made a push block for through cuts on the table saw. It's a pretty simple project that results in a really useful tool.
We got a push stick with our table saw, and while they're useful for pushing very narrow work pieces through your table saw, they aren't very useful for holding wider boards against the fence.
Bryan started by cutting a section from a scrap 2x10 board. Then, he traced a pattern on it with a pencil and cut it out with a jigsaw. A band saw would have made the cut a little easier, but if you don't have one, know that a jigsaw will get the job done.
Once the push block was cut out, Bryan used a random orbit sander to sand down the face of the block and sanded the inner part of the handle by wrapping some sandpaper around a piece of scrap wood.
Bryan thinks this table saw push block works like a charm and is happy with the way it turned out.
