    Best part of the design is that it doesn’t matter which part of it you grab, it’s always a handle.
    Pushsticks are literally sacrificial items. They’re meant to be cut into if needed.
    If you cut into yours, with all those holes in it, it’ll be significantly weaker, potentially breaking apart as you’re pushing a piece through the blade. Not to mention the fact that you’ve glued sandpaper to the stick, which sounds like a good idea….but having gritty things anywhere near a blade is just asking for a dull blade.

    And, this looks like it’s taken way too long to make, drilling all those holes.

    It’s cool looking.
    But items designed for safety need to be more practical and functional.

    Just my opinion, as you’ve asked for opinions.

    Hi Im new at woodworking

    Can somebody help

  3. Tom Wielichowski on September 7, 2022 at 1:14 am

    Thanks for the pdf!

  4. Paul Boadway on September 7, 2022 at 1:14 am

    Could you make one of the ‘tail grippers’ shallow and the other deeper for different thicknesses of wood?

  5. Christofix on September 7, 2022 at 1:15 am

    Hello my friend, first I want to say that this is a great video, but I have a problem. For months I had been thinking about a good push stick until I finally came up with an idea that seemed perfect to me. I made a video of it and placed the video on my channel this week. I quickly received a comment that the push stick I made was very similar to yours and I was also blamed by one person for having stolen your idea. While I had never seen your video before. this doesn’t feel so good to me and wanted to let you know personally that there are similarities between our designs and that these are purely coincidental. Even our titles are similar, while there are clear differences and my title is in the same line as the titles of other videos I already made. I thought of putting a note in my description with the reference to your video and that the similarities are purely coincidental, that way I start to feel better about it.
    I never intended to copy your work and I hope you understand the coincidence in this.
    PS I have now subscribed to your channel and before i make a video iwill first come to see if you have not worked out the same idea. You know what they say, great minds think alike!

    Very nice, but I seen them break in the hand of the user, if I make it and I will I’ll have one hole in the tip of the handle just for hanging and maybe somewhat thicker.

    Template link doesn’t work

  9. bitemyram on September 7, 2022 at 1:28 am

    Nicely engineered. 👍🏻👍🏻

  10. Allan Kellar on September 7, 2022 at 1:30 am

    Awesome push stick

  11. sergio gomez on September 7, 2022 at 1:30 am

    Man, love the push stick, and I went to your site and for $20 delivered I bought. Now I can use it as a template while I use it as intended as well. Keep up the videos! Thank you. Sergio

  12. Joseph Borbone on September 7, 2022 at 1:30 am

    A Cautionary Tale. This is a great design…. so I had a nice scrap of Oak. After I finished the build, I dropped it and it broke into three pieces. Next time I’ll use plywood.

  13. Dreamtool10 on September 7, 2022 at 1:33 am

    I found this very useful, so much I took the template and did a 3D file .step file for those who have CNC’s as myself + added a undercut in corner. With woodcraft’s permission I’ll gladly share it if anyone is interested.

  14. Angelo Cillo on September 7, 2022 at 1:34 am

    The template page is blank. I guess it was only available a short time. Can someone please email it to me?

  15. Kraig Klopp on September 7, 2022 at 1:34 am

    I forgot to ask if you could have the template be transferred to fusion 360, I did it by the instructions but it still doesn’t download.

  16. Kraig Klopp on September 7, 2022 at 1:35 am

    Is the radius for the angle 2” or 1 3/4”?

  17. Dale Williford on September 7, 2022 at 1:36 am

    I cannot get the template but I can’t go to the website and buy one for 20 bucks but I was more interested in the free template so I can make my own

  18. james lahaine on September 7, 2022 at 1:36 am

    Also subs as some wooden brass knuckles if you ever need to take care of

  19. mingueyox on September 7, 2022 at 1:36 am

    Not that it would be very difficult to make our own version of it, but it’s too bad we can’t download the "free" plan 🤷🏻‍♂️

  20. Jeroen H on September 7, 2022 at 1:36 am

    Thanks for a very cool Push-Stick 🙂

  21. Bill K. on September 7, 2022 at 1:37 am

    Made one. Works really well, thanks for offering it for free.

  22. resorter66 on September 7, 2022 at 1:38 am

    Do you still offer the template for the push stick with holes

  23. Kathryn Newton on September 7, 2022 at 1:38 am

    I thought it was a boomerang 😅 but light I’m sure, like the sand paper too!

  24. Fulla Blarney on September 7, 2022 at 1:39 am

    it’s a good stick. I make mine with baltic birch 1/4" ply, and build up the handle to 3/4". I drill a 1" hole near the top and open the hole up on the forward side to make it easy to get a finger in & out. That way I can hang on to the pushstick with a ring or pinky finger while picking up the next piece of stock.

  25. stripcslashes on September 7, 2022 at 1:40 am

    IDK how well this will work, but I’m definitely going to try it and will update this comment. Loved the video man, great quality. Insta subscribed.

  26. Stanly F on September 7, 2022 at 1:42 am

    The push stick template link does not work.

  27. Michael Schuler on September 7, 2022 at 1:42 am

    Regarding safety: Imagine the possibility that the work piece suddenly is not between your hand or the push stick and the blade. The max. blade height of your saw is likely about 3". Your design does not prohibit your hand from gripping the push stick and being closer to the saw table than the height of the blade at times. I prefer designs which eliminate this possibility altogether.

    Also, while the sand paper gives improved ability to keep the work piece against the fence, rip cuts narrower than 3/4" will cut through the bottom of the push stick, in which case the sand paper will not do the blade’s teeth any favors. Sticky bottom is a good idea, but better executed with some type of grippy rubber, such as what is used on the bottom of track saw tracks. I have found rolls of self adhesive rubber strip on McMaster Carr, etc. that work well for such applications.

  28. G. Fortin on September 7, 2022 at 1:43 am

    i like your design ! but I’m afraid at some point my push sticks all become sacrificial and I’d source some rubber of some sort because sandpaper hitting my saw blades teeth would not be optimal. The stick itself is great !

  29. Giovanni Ferdico on September 7, 2022 at 1:43 am

    Why do you need a billing address to get the free push stick template???

  30. MGoat76 on September 7, 2022 at 1:45 am

    This is awesome. Holes or each finger. I don’t have to drill new holes as I saw my fingers off. Brilliant! 😂

  31. Beeker on September 7, 2022 at 1:45 am

    It’s funny when he said, "regular ol push stick" and, "I’m not really good with regular ol". It is supposed to be as the saying goes, "regular old…".

  32. Pete Murphy on September 7, 2022 at 1:51 am

    Slick design and it works great. I downloaded your template and made one. Keep the great designs coming.

  33. Paul Carter on September 7, 2022 at 1:51 am

    Cannot download. Please advise.

  34. gerald crook on September 7, 2022 at 1:51 am

    smart looking stick love the shape 10/10

  35. Melinda Manthey on September 7, 2022 at 1:52 am

    I would drill the holes first.

  36. Richard Crosby on September 7, 2022 at 1:53 am

    love my stick…. thanks

  37. stacy kelly on September 7, 2022 at 1:53 am


  38. Will Begg on September 7, 2022 at 1:54 am

    Love the design. I actually 3D printed a few in several thicknesses. I like that it’s dual sided, so I don’t have to think when I grab it.

  39. Mário Jorge Caldeira on September 7, 2022 at 1:54 am

    Those holes on it turned it looks nice, but you must be careful because accidentally you may get your finger trapped in one of those while you cutting and then… can’t imagine. But the idea is fantastic. Well done.

  40. Dylan Pil on September 7, 2022 at 1:55 am

    Im from Australia and cant download plans as the shopping cart wont send to that address

  41. Noël Blanchet on September 7, 2022 at 1:58 am

    I am not able to download the pdf. How to do it?

  42. Old Geordie Geezer on September 7, 2022 at 1:59 am

    "A handle here and a handle here"

    Sorry – two ways to do the same thing exactly the same way – you didn’t sell me on it.

  43. nigtturner on September 7, 2022 at 2:03 am

    I would like to see a similar design but carrying the shape all the way round, using 60 degree angles make a equilateral triangle, I know you are only going to get three push heals but they could be made different depths for different thickness wood ie you could make them 1/4 “ 3/4” and 1’1/4 or just make them to your specific requirements

  44. Bee-u-tiful Adventures on September 7, 2022 at 2:05 am

    Very cool idea! Thanks for taking the time to share. I’m fairly new to woodworking and want to give this a try.

  45. Fish FPV on September 7, 2022 at 2:05 am

    Good video….subbed!!

  46. dennis buckner on September 7, 2022 at 2:05 am

    This is neat design but the thing most over looked by people it the difference of the height of the person compared to the height of the saw table this is what makes the stick comfortable or not for the most part short stick short person it sucks believe me that is why my sticks are long is not only to ush it past the blade itself but far enough away to make it safe to grab but you still have a really cool design cheers

  47. Barbara Ruggiero on September 7, 2022 at 2:06 am


  48. Inspire Woodcraft on September 7, 2022 at 2:09 am

    Hey guys apparently there was an issue with the original scanned template but it is fixed now and should work great if you re-download the pdf. My sincere apologies for the mix up if you ran into trouble!

  49. fred schmidt on September 7, 2022 at 2:10 am

    An old boy I revered regarding woodworking had a unique push stick. I thought it was unique. One feature that was worthy of a question for him was the use of a dowel for the push point. The dowel was vertical and behind the heel of his hand. It was in a sticky hole in that he started it by pushing it to protrude in excess of the part thickness to be sawn. As he began to push, the dowel was driven up into it’s hole to exactly the part thickness.
