Last week I asked the community for their favorite quick safety tips and they were kind enough to respond with some fun and insightful tricks of the trade. So I took a few of my favorites and bundled them up in this 50’s style educational video. I hope you enjoy!

Special thanks to Jeremy Kriewwaldt, Tom Obrien, Bearwood, Ted Ames, Mark Loughran, Benjamin Roesler, and Don Hall.

Looking for the finger wrap shown in the video?

Flexible wrap helps protect fingers from burns and blisters, plus improves grip. Simply wrap tape around any finger for extra protection.

Don’t forget to “log in to the Wood Whisperer and Lumberjocks” regularly and search, search, search anytime you have a question or need a tip about anything related to your current project. You’ll learn multitudes from the information and if you practice what the sites preach, get to keep your fingers too.

Hey Mark, did you actually shave or was that a mask! Great video as usual. Keep them coming.

I wish I could say that was a mask, but alas, that is the face my mamma gave me! :)

Bring back the stubble, brother. It gives you wood cred. I cracked up at the superstar wink.

Very nice Mark .. the only things missing were the annoying ‘ratchet’ sound from the old projectors and the occasional ‘wild hair’ popping up on the screen

No bloopers? Great video and some very useful tips also, I sure could have used the comb trick when I did framing, then again, I might have gotten some funny looks to if I did that.

Wish I would have seen this before the mishap with the chain fall this morning. Had one side of the lifting bar come loose in the middle of the lift. Not good.

Excellent video – you should try a guild build in vintage style. See how long people can put up with it.
