I believe the key to safety is understanding the tools and their potential for danger. That is why I like to show novices what can happen with flying boards, etc. and the importance of keeping body parts out of harms way.

Boats, cars, construction.
In the old day, if we built a boat from wood it was likely because we couldn't afford to buy one. Today some recreational kayaks and canoes are dirt cheap, but functional. At over $180 per sheet of 1/2' marine plywood, and the cost of fasteners, etc it is discouraging to build a wood boat. (and certainly not to save money!)
If I have an objective, it is to try to accomplish a quality construction using acceptable substitute materials. More on this later.
