Re: Tablesaw Safety Around the Clock

All I have to do to stay safe is look at my left thumb. In 1984 I reached behind the blade to hold down a chattering thin rip and in a split second lost the last 1/2" of it. It is a vivid reminder for me and others I teach. I've never seen saw stop test that one.

Re: UPDATE: Dovetail Techniques with Stephen Hammer

thanks for give away. Hopefully it will come to me.

Re: Play Against the Grain: One Lazy Latheman

Thanks for doing this now and then. I'm glad Safety reminders are part of what you do. Someone below stated that this was just common sence, but common sence isn't very common any more. I was a woodworker for 10 years, got lazy one day and ran my thumb backwards through the table saw. Keep it up.

Re: Fine Woodworking On the Road: Come out and see us

With Maine being the 41st state in population and over a forth of your outings being there, does this reflect your readership balance? If so, Maine must have a lot of woodworkers.

Re: Fitting drawers to a crooked table

Thanks for the great tip. I noticed the base for your table is the hay rake design that was a dining room table a while back. Is this a different piece or another piece of the same design? If another piece, what is it and will you show us the finished piece? Thanks again.
