    These thin-style push sticks are intended for handling short boards (under 12″) on my table saw. They are based off of Metthias Wandel’s post available here. I used a piece of pine that I had kicking around that was roughly 10mm thick.

    You can download the model (.f3d) file for free from my website. Remember to adjust the model thickness to your stock and all CAM related settings to your machine / setup.

    I started by producing a model using Fusion 360 and configuring the CAM operations.

    Next, I generated the G-Code using Fusion 360's TinyG post processor and sent it to the TinyG controller board using cncjs.

    I then ran them over my router table using a round-over bit.

    Finally, I sanded them and applied tung oil.

    This was a fun little project that took about 45 mins to do. Feel free to do as you like with the plans.

    Here is a video of another set that I made. Please excuse the novice video making!
    Merry Christmas!



    Cheers.
