Getting back is hard to do.
This episode aired on Google+ and YouTube on June 14, 2012. I am getting back into woodworking, following a seven-month hiatus. Please read on.

This is the first episode in a new series in Hangouts on Air. It was important to me, as I start preparing mentally to re-enter the shop after a seven-month absence. And avoiding injury has been on my mind; as a result, this was a perfect opportunity to kick off this series, and to get answers to the source of my anxiety – *safety in the shop.* Many of you know I have been preparing to become a Certified Court Interpreter (English < > Spanish) in Missouri, USA – thus the reason for my absence.
I hope other woodworking magazine Editors, book authors, and woodworking bloggers will accept my invitation for a chat in the near future, to talk shop, tools, safety, process, design, etc.
Today I invited the following woodworking colleagues into a hangout:
+Asa Christiana, Editor of Fine Woodworking magazine,
+Matthew Kenney, Senior Editor, Fine Woodworking magazine, and
+Dyami Plotke, of the +Modern Woodworkers Association
to chat in a Google+ hangout about safety, upcoming events with Fine Woodworking, and hand tools vs. power tools in the shop.
My thanks to all participants. Please stand by as I announce additional woodworking hangouts!
