Hard to tell from that picture… but, most kickbacks are from the same issues.

- Your piece is not properly pushed against the fence, using a stick can slip too easily
- Your material to too small, or much wider then it is deep (which twists in and left easily)
- You are not using a riving knife, or again, too small to engage it

The wood catches the back of the blade and then there is not much you can do but keep your hands away from the spinny sharp bits. So glad you are ok.

Do yourself, your family, and yourself a favor! Build a crosscut sled! Feel free to look at mine in my projects. That tings has saved body parts and is a dream to use! My favorite item in my shop is that sled.
