Woody Woodworking

and its tools

Cheap table-saw safety upgrade, and some honest talk about table-saw safety

2 min read

I have been making some beautiful workshop accessories lately. This is not one of them, but it’s so useful that maybe I’ll make version two a little more flashy.

I feel pretty confident saying that most woodworkers are not nearly as safe as they should be in the workshop, and I’m one of them. I know that my tools can remove fingers and eyes, but I also know that my tools have not yet removed fingers nor eyes, so I don’t lose a lot of sleep worrying about it. I’ve been fortunate to have had enough close calls that I know which situations are higher-risk, and therefore merit greater caution, but I don’t step in to my workshop each day worried if my socks are going to melt if I touch a drill press with a faulty ground wire.

Sometimes when a safety-related incident occurs, assuming the personal injury was minimal, we’re more concerned about the damage to whatever project we were working on at the time. Acknowledging the reality of workshop safety, I’m providing this video to give you a very inexpensive and not-at-all-inconvenient way of improving your safety around one of the most dangerous tools in the workshop: The table saw.

Please note that I am not advocating irresponsible behavior or a disregard for workshop safety; I’m just being honest about what I’ve seen and what I’ve done. I’m a firm believer that it’s better to be safe than sorry, but I’m not always a practicing believer.
