How To Use An Axe Safely in the Bangor Daily News

Last week I was interviewed by Sam Schipani from the Bangor Daily News about axe safety. The article went live on November 3rd, you can read it here:

How To Use An Axe Safely

I think she did a solid job summarizing the key points of axe safety. What do you think?

    They should have included somthing in there about split or loose handles. In my experience, that is one of the first things I check for….but maybe that wasn’t on point with the topic. I’ve seen handles duct-taped, screwed, glued…you name it. That is an accident waiting to happen.

    Thanks for sharing, Tim!

  • I agree with you on loose handles. We had a long discussion on the phone, but I had no control over what made it into the article. Overall I thought it was a solid article. Thanks for the comment.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
