I saw this great push stick made by Lumberjock named CapitanKlutz made with a plane handle.
I have two of these I bought from E-bay that weren’t as good as the ones they were to replace.

After I saw CaptainKlutz’s, I decided to make two of my own.
One for wider boards and one for narrower boards.

I used #8 x 1 1/4” brass screws to attach the front of the handles and large Spax #14 x 4 3/4” star screws to attach the rear of the handles.

I don’t think push sticks that just push the wood are safe. The wood can lift up and fly towards you. These work great and hold down the wood while pushing it at the same time.

Majuvla. Thanks for your comment.
I think your talking about the fabric in the photo. I know it’s over the top. There’s a bunch of different fabrics in a shed here so I thought I could use them for the photography.
But your right. I do take safety seriously.

Those a very useful push sticks. More like push boards. I also like the fabrics in the background.
Very fancy for a woodworker.
Maybe you can use the fabric for upholstery.
