Safety must haves for DIY


In this video professional wood worker Ashley Quintero guides the viewers about five must have safety gears they should use in their DIY endeavors.

  1. Snug fitting gloves: They are important to keep safe from the potential risk of injuring your fists while using tools and splinters from wood.
  2. Mask: Mask is required to protect lungs from fine wood dust.
  3. Goggles: They protect eyes from debris which can cause infections or worse.
  4. Earplugs: Powertools often create noise of over 85 decibels. Ear plugs will protect ears from potential damages.
