Fine, but can it take pictures? Does it have GPS? Just kidding. Very well thought out and executed. I admire that.

It reminds me of the old Popular Science ”Wordless Workshop”!
This guy spent a lot of time on this design and, even though I have no use for it, it is a well thought out and creative project that can be used to build other projects.
It is a perfect fit for the small European shops like my late uncle in Germany.

I watched the video and after careful thought of what I saw.I have come to the conclusion that he will cut one of his fingers off.:(

yeah, he has some safety habits I don’t agree with.

I’ve worked quite a bit with a sliding table and
fence and never had any cause to get my fingers
so close to the blade.

Yeah, he gave me the willies. I thought it was bad camera angles, or that maybe it was just me. Glad to hear from some other guys who can still count to ten and want to do so in the future.

I also winced when he made some of those cuts. And though his design is ingenious, I thought there were too many screws to mess with.

But I do like the silent treatment. I get really impatient with the ones who tell you (8 or 10 times) what they are going to do before actually doing anything. They typically wave the tool or board around and make meaningless gestures, such as patting the jointer or saw table with their hands (to make sure you know what tool or technique they are going to demonstrate).

Perspective. I put out a video once with the same camera angle and got grief over getting my fingers too close when in reality my hands were like 8-10” from the blade. I don’t know how close he was but I do know that angle is deceiving.
