For me, one of my best safety tools is my imagination. It might sound weird or even gruesome, but I sometimes just sit in the shop and look at some of the tools (especially power tools) and think, what could go wrong and how wrong could it go. I try to visualize different scenarios of what could happen if the piece jerked in my hands while cutting or a piece slintered off and got shot out by the blade or any number of scenarios. Once I think of the things that can go wrong I then try to think about ways to work and handle the piece to keep it from going wrong.
