You could make a pusher out of 2X material (2X3 or 4) by cutting a rabbet on one corner. Easy to do on the TS, also on many jointers. You’d also want a stop or hook at the back to push the stock through. The rabbet (say 3/4” X 3/4” give or take—could also be deeper than wide—say, 1”x 5/8” lets you easily hold the stock down and against the fence with one hand. Put a handle on it for more control. I’d make this thing a foot long or so.
