    How adorable but working with a saw It's always important to be using your safety rules. Your hair could get caught up in the saw from what I could see it didn't show that your hair was pulled back. Your hair should be either in a ponytail or up on your head away from the saw.and safety glasses in case a chip of wood were to hit you in the eye. I used to work with machinery and that was the number one rule safety first before operating any type of machine or tool..

    Please for your safety..and others..you need to remind people 2 wear safety glasses. And pull their hair out of their way unless they have real short hair. Most people know that but when you add material to your list always when working with wood nails screws machinery..on your list..be sure to add that as well .. because some people..might for get..or not even think about it.. your bench is adorable and I definitely would like to make one .. you did a beautiful job. Thank you very much for sharing.

      I’am with you on the safty glasses, and the hair. A gal in shop class didn’t get her hair pulled back.....and the saw took off hair and a bit of skin as well. The hair didn’t grow back.
