Forget those pre-assembled first-aid kits you find in drug stores. Forget what you've previously been told about treating injuries. This guide will help you address the specific problems of first aid faced by woodworkers and show you how to assemble a kit that will truly be a lifesaver in the shop. Woodworker and physician Patrick Sullivan knows all about common shop injuries and how they should be treated. Here, he tells you about specialized equipment and supplies that work well in the shop, and demonstrates a few tricks on treating wounds, from stopping bleeding to cleaning wounds to bandages.
