If youre looking for an ideal push/hold-down block for ripping boards on the table saw, just grab a scrap of 2×6. Cut it 8 in. long and notch it as shown. And if you cut a 1/2-in. heel end on each kitty corner end, youll double the number of cuts you can make before its worn out. The 2×6 block guarantees safer ripping cuts, since it keeps your hand high above the blade while exerting downward force on the board to hold the board at on the table as you push it into the blade.
