Seventeen years ago, I felt confident enough in my self-taught skills to use the Hickam Air Force Base wood shop. I met a woodworker there who made exceptionally beautiful boxes and small tables. Every time I saw him in the shop, he’d give me a safety tip. Then I got my own shop and he moved to Seattle, end of story- right? Not so fast, about six months ago my husband was at a meeting in Seattle and he saw my friend. My friend, who had lost two fingers on a Skill saw. Are you kidding me!? If a person like Ed, who was so aware of the danger, could have that kind of an accident, NO ONE is safe. It’s just the luck of the draw….......
