A lot of woodworkers make their own pushsticks. But how many turn the handles, accent them with burn lines and finish them?

SWMBO says I have way too much time on my hands … maybe she is right! ;>}

Your wife may be right. But, it’s still neat.

That’s way cool. Good turning practice, really nice push stick. Is this what wives would call “accessorizing the shop”?

It is OCD, but tool cool. Nice work.

Just because it’s “only” a shop tool, doesn’t mean you can’t make it nice!

Definitely over the top! BUT way cool! I just recently retired a pusher made out of 3 paint stirrers screwed together, so….... never mind. Anyway, I love your “out there” reference to SWMBO, from my favorite lawyer… not something many would get, without Googling, anyway. KUDOS!

Without your “Wife Labeled” OCD thing you have going on… You wouldn’t have one of the coolest looking push sticks I’ve seen in a while. Heck…. I say embarrassed it…lol

Very cool and well done! I would be proud to have this jewel in my shop…

If I had a dime every time my wife said I was OCD in the workshop I’d have 382913 dimes. Nice stick.
