I’ve been meaning to talk about shop safety for a while. Thanks to Wood Magazine's e-newsletter, I read about this case. So in a nutshell, a guy mangled his fingers on a table saw, sued Ryobi, and was awarded $1.5 million.
This inspired me to talk a bit about shop safety. And I encourage everyone to read Mike Rowe's article: Safety Third.
I've been in a woodworking funk these past few weekends. Unable to really find an inspired project. So I decided to get a small chunk of wood and start whittling...something I haven't done since I was a kid. It's an invigorating exercise! So if you are at a loss for something to do, try whittling! It's asy and requires nothing more than a pocket knife and a block of pine.
If you have any ideas on how to get past a creative block, I'd love to hear them!
