Two weeks ago to the day, I allowed my mind to wander for just a split second but that’s all it took for my right thumb to kiss the tablesaw blade and leave a rather nasty rip up the side of it. Not a slice, as in a plunge, more of a paring or peeling action. Hope to be back in action next week.

A few years back I was pushing a large piece of plywood through the tablesaw, went to grab the cutoff which was falling off the table and saw the piece I was cutting get picked up by the blade and get thrown into the wall.
