One of the frustrating things when working with wood that is warped is trying to get at least one edge flat and straight without taking off too much wood, and of course, doing it all safely. Many years ago I made a kind of long push block for the jointer, but it never really worked as I had hoped so I abandoned it ... now years later I am remaking a newer version with some upgraded features.

The purpose of the block is to be able to safely handle smaller pieces of wood that are warped, and run them through the jointer until I can get an edge to them that is stable enough to use my hand paddles to continue to work the wood as needed.
