Someone here asked if everyone had a handy first aid box for their shop (may you never need one). Well, it gave me an idea…and I needed one. This box, my first with all parts cut on the bandsaw, is made from 1/2 inch oak plywood giving me experience with my dado blades and exact measurements. The box is an exact 7 inch cube. The lid is cut about two inches down from the top of the box. It’s large enough for a first aid commerical wound wash bottle, bandaids, and other items for a first aid box. I’ve yet to install the hinges and the clasp… that’ll come tomorrow…but essentially it’s done. I’ll place it in the shop in a very conspicuous place so that others can see it as well…should there ever be others in my shop. Oh, this was good experience making a simple box/cube with plywood and using my dado blades for the first time on my tablesaw. I’ve used dado blades lots of times before when I had my other shop 20 years ago. So, I have a first aid kit…and let’s hope I never need it.. nor you yours. Safety first, last and always.
