Making mistakes, a word on safety.

First off, safety is important when making things.  Dust, chemicals, slivers...  It all can hurt you. 
 That is a lot of dust.  I expect another 1/3 of it was floating around in the room with me.  I did not take proper safety precautions when doing this, and ended up with a upper respiratory infection from all the dust.  I did wear protection for most of the job, but cutting the first board without protection was enough. 

I've made other mistakes over the years.  Everyone will get hurt eventually, doing something.  Never, ever, let yourself make a mistake and not learn a lesson from it. 

I bought a high end respirator.
