I basically bisected my thumb 4 weeks ago while cutting strips for the cutting boards I was making.

I said it before and I’ll say it again.

Don’t be fooled into thinking you are too skilled to have an accident.
The truth is you have been lucky…

Nobody plans an accident. Play it safe by using your guards and when you can’t, use sleds and/or jigs to keep your hands away from the blade.

I used to think I was experienced and would never be injured by a power tool.
I have now changed my tune..
