Handle

The handle or push block can be just about anything of your choosing. I chose a piece of scrap 8/4 maple that I had in the shop. I rounded over the top to make it more comfortable and sanded it smooth.

Attach with glue and add screws from the underside of the sled. Ensure that the screw heads are not proud of the surface or they will scratch your table saw.

Burry Block

Cut a piece of scrap Harwood to fit behind the fences and in the line of the kerf. Attach with glue. This piece is added to ensure that your hands are always protected from the blade.
