Just saw this on the internet, all I can say is I am glad I am safer in the shop.

Wow. I guess the biggest for me is the flip-flops. In my mind that thing falling on his toes is going to hurt a lot worse that the drill in the hand, but hey, that’s just me.

flip flops are an obvious no no, cant tell if he has glasses on or not, but it appears that when he drills through that piece his thumb may get a new vent hole.

On the positive side, at least his hair is not going to get caught in the spinning drill bit.

From the looks of the picture, I’m sure he is used to getting dinged occasionally ;-))

From a guy who is usually seen in shorts and barefoot, I can’t say much… except that I know better than to drill into my hand and I have more hair… :)

A worker screwing one board to some kind of casement, the screws probably are short enough to not come through the other side, the whole project is sitting on three sawhorses, boards are clamped in position to help keep alignment,, the whole project is not tipping over, the only thing would be he has flip flops on.

I would still go with hand placement and the flip flops. I understand that it is his shop and his rules, I was not trying to enforce a standard but more to say that it is not if you will get hurt but when.
