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”.

      Coarse threaded screws are generally considered to be better for MDF, although for this lightweight application, and four fasteners located in such close proximity, the thread geometry is not critical as long as you don’t over tighten the fastener. (ZD: 3600)

    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??
