A Two Minute Safety Tip

As I grow more "antiqueish", I have found an old comfortable chair to be one of the safest tools in my shop. Whenever I get puzzled over the next step or feel at all frazzled, I shuffle over to my deerskin covered chair and take a few minutes to close my eyes. Then I talk to myself about the problems I might be having with my current project, how to solve it, and then think about my next steps. I take a few bites out of my apple, and get back to work. These breaks don't take many minutes out of the day and are cheap insurance against a missing digit or two.
