Just playing around when I really should be doing something meaningful. Like cross a few projects off the Honeydo list;). And yes it’s all wood.

That’s cool. I did a double take when I read that it’s all wood. At first, I thought it was a joke and I was just a bit slow. Very nice.

This has to be THE finest push/hold down I’ve ever seen here. Kudos my woodwork friend. Well done!

That is so very cool , I was wondering from the first pic what you would do if you nicked a blade with it but now I know it is no problem.

Wow! Ditto to what was said above! My first thought was, “NOOOOOO!, don’t use a metal push stick!!!!”

Very well done.

Shoulda made it a Bedrock. And corrugated. Everyone knows they make better push sticks than regular Stanleys.

(~seriously, that looks awesome!~)
