Specific Ways To Stay Safe In The Shop

Here are some basic safety tips for you to consider when using specific products in the woodworking shop:

  • If using glue or thinners, always put them in a safe place away from things that may cause them to light. This goes for rags you'd use with them also.
  • Always put the lids on paints, stains and bottles.
  • Keep your work area well ventilated with incoming fresh air.
  • If your shop is in the basement, remember there are standing pilots to consider from the hot water tank. If the fumes reach a standing pilot, it will light.
