As a Professor at a college in Canada that trains future cabinetmakers, I find this settlement beyond comprehension.
The problem here is that anybody can be a cabinetmaker... just buy the machinery and tools and presto, I'm a cabinetmaker. Wrong. We owe it to ourselves to be educated and familiar with our tools. We need to know how to recognize what is safe and what isn't. We also need to know the limitations of our tools and machinery.
Maybe we need more government legislation to protect us from being stupid.
Take a course!
