In the very near future, I’ll be starting up a YouTube… show… thing. Not sure what to call it, but in my head, it’s a simple one-man show where I pick a subject, and discuss it, while in my garage. Maybe I work on something, maybe I just sit in front of the camera. Maybe I try to do something I’ve never done or attempt to teach you a skill.

If you work with power tools, safety is important. A push block is a safety tool I should have had already, but… well… I have no excuse. Cutting rabbets and dadoes on a table saw or router is dangerous. So, let’s make a push block. Sure, they are super cheap to buy, but free is always better.
