George Vondriska teaches you how to make a simple Router Table Push Block for accurately cutting across the end grain of narrow pieces of wood on a router table without blowback or chipping. He likes to refurbish old push pads by scraping off the worn out rubber pad and drilling the plastic handle to a ¾”, 10×10 base of MDF. This jig allows you greater control over the piece you are cutting on a router table by not allowing it to wobble or “walk”.

    Brass screws might be more prudent, especially as the push block gets smaller.

    what kind of screws are those you are using? They look perfect for a project I am thinking about.

    Great idea, maybe if you have no left over push handles, why not use a large cupboard door handle? or make one from wood and screw and glue it to the MDF board??

    I notice you used fine thread screws. Are that type best for MDF?
