I had a couple hours to myself on Sunday. So I took advantage of the time and “upgraded” my table saw.

A couple of weeks ago I picked up a feather board at Hartville Tool. I know I probaly could have made one, but that’s not the issue here.

Anyways, back to Sunday. A couple of quick cuts and a few counter sunk holes, now I feel a little safer using my saw (or at least I will the next time I use it).

It was a little “mini-project” but still I feal I accomplished something and sure beat doing nothing.

Hello CoolDavion;
—-thank you for your words on ’safety’. I am all-ways on the ‘live edge’ with wood and safety and from my experience….trees, wood, woodworking and safety all walk hand in hand….especially if one wants to keep those hands.

Thank you.

One of the magazines just had an article on power tool safety. The main rule was never get flesh closer than three inches to a blade or bit that is in motion.
