Well it happened, I was building a couple drawers for my boy’s dresser and had a small accident. While I was a little tired, I just didn’t think. I was cutting multiple pieces and assembling. Once 2 drawers were complete, I decided to cut the pieces for one additional drawer…..that is when it happened….kickback! Set up the fence to cross-cut a couple matching length pieces, but forgot to add the small scrap block spacer to allow for a gap for the off-cut piece. Let me tell you, all went down hill in the blink of an eye. The piece (1/2×6x15) flew back and hit just to the right of my belly button and then into the wall and onto the floor. Surprised me more then hurt, but today it is tender and I have a quater sized bruise…....I was lucky, and will not make that mistake again.
-- Measuring twice and cutting once only works if you read the tape correctly!
