A Safety Message from the Netherlands (You Needn’t Know Dutch)

 In Shop Blog, Woodworking Blogs

I probably shouldn’t share these here, because I copied the images from another site: Flavorwire (my daily stop for cool stuff on the Interwebs). But I couldn’t resist, because these two workplace safety posters about woodworking tools are awesome. I wonder what they say? Not that it matters – the point is clear. (See 10 more of these excellent and scary vintage workplace safety posters at flavorwire.)
