Woodworking Safety

 
I dabble in woodworking and have made several things pieces of furniture. I am also a serious DIYer, having finished a complete basement remodel, including electrical work, myself. I feel like I am, for the most part, a safe person. I recently read a post on WoodNet.net where a father and his six-year-old son were working on a project together and the father tried to show his son how to use a table saw and give him some table saw safety. If you didn't see any issues with the previous sentence let me spell it out...SIX YEAR OLD and TABLE SAW SAFETY. The scenario of those two coming together should never exist. Power tools are awesome and something everyone should be exposed to in life, but please understand that tools can be dangerous and need to be treated with the highest respect. If you have a small child in the house (or even an inexperienced handyperson) please take care to safeguard the house or shop. Lock up power tools if need be. BE SMART!

Yes. This should be common sense and apply to all dangerous materials in your house... guns, chemicals...
