Push Block Cradle

By: Erich Lage
A safe way to keep your push block close at hand.

W223 007f01 previewWhen using the table saw, there’s often an awkward moment when I need to pick up a push block midway through a cut to complete the process safely. It seems that no matter how close I position the push block, I occasionally fumble with it when it’s lying flat on the saw table. To solve this problem, I built this push block holder that sits right on top of my rip fence and holds my push block upright where it’s easy to grab. W223 007f02 03It’s simply a plywood cradle with a couple rare-earth magnets recessed in the base to hold it in place. W223 007a01 05Now, my push block is always at the ready without an uncomfortable or unsafe reach.
