Fun Meet up

Mike from BrokenStick.ca stopped by my shop the other day.  We commiserated about the lack of available sticks for our projects.  I’ve had to turn down far too many orders for hockey stick cutting boards due to lack of wood sticks.  We soon also discovered we went to the same school years ago, small world!

 

Mike was kind enough to give me a couple of his hockey stick bottle openers.  I used a similar design last holiday season for bottle openers but used scrap wood from other projects instead of hockey sticks.  They were a great seller but a bit mind numbing to produce after a while…

Table Saw push stick

Surprisingly, I don’t actually have a push stick.  All these years I’ve usually just grabbed whatever scrap was lying around.  For awhile I had part of an old hockey stick that did a pretty good job… but today I figured why not make one, probably safer than what I’ve been using!

 

Pretty simple design made out of scrap 3/4″ plywood with about a 3/8″ lip at the back to grip the wood.  How does it work?  Well I had nothing that really needed cutting so I didn’t try it out, but I’m sure it’s just dandy…
