Workshop Safety

I never took shop in high school. I guess if I had, I might have learned some basic safety.

Some of the blades I'm working with these days are large and heavy. Occasionally I drop some. Particularly when a really good song is on the radio and I'm having a good singalong.

I barely avoided losing a toe tonight. Were it not for my catlike reflexes (ha!), I would probably be on the way to the emergency room right now with at least one toe in a ziploc baggy with some ice.

Tips to aspiring knifemakers: always wear shoes in the workshop.
