I felt guilty (and a little scared) using my old pushers on my new Unisaw, so I decided to make a couple nicer ones. I had an old wooden handle from a saw that I kept for the purpose of making patterns from the handle because it really felt nice. I traced them on some rough sawn cedar and cut them out on the band saw. The base plate of the pusher is still the rough sawn face of the cedar so it will have a little gription. The handle and the heel are just glued on, if the handle doesn’t hold up well, I may use a dowel or two on my next version.
