Get Real

Christopher Schwarz sent me a ridiculous link from Amazon this morning. So I spent a few minutes learning how to use the scroll saw (never touched it until today) to make this far more realistic representation of a “safety assistant push stick” – a potbellied guy in a trucker cap. Perhaps I’ll make a few more, spray paint them orange and put them up for sale.

    Or,maybe alter image in the shape of a bathing beauty striking a pose. You have certainly done well climbing the raised bar of a scroller on you first day at it.. Thanks for the share.

  2. Pure genius. I’ll take one.

    Good Job, but gotta make a few of the Christopher Schwarz version… Yours looks too much like me.

    I was just about to make a push stick. Count me in, too.

    It looks more like a gorilla than the intended model. I think a better shaped neck and defined logo cap will give the desired visual effect.

    I thought you made her pregnant… which seemed more ribald than your typical writing style.

    Can I get one from my mud flaps?

    The push sticks are experiencing a mini Schwarz effect : down to 5 left from the 9 remaining in the PW blog screenshot.
