We’re here to support each other, but the goal of the club is not to drive each other to the emergency room. The number of years you’ve used a tool without an accident is no indicator of how safe you are. Please think of the following . . .
- Great new safety devices and technologies make woodworking safer. Check out some of the items referenced below.
- Learning from your Dad or shop teacher decades ago isn’t necessarily disciplined safety training. YouTube and online articles (below) offer great lessons/refreshers.
- Invite a few club members over to look over your shop. Fresh eyes might see safety issues you’ve grown immune to seeing.
