    Just as I said earlier. Who came up with it and who marketed it are two different things.
    There are many "routine" techniques I've used over the years that I don't really give much thought to....

    Thank you for the clarification.
    I won't go into all what if's, but it sounds as if a simple set of stop blocks clamped securely could have made the difference, no way to tell.

    Always remember, this is just a "method of work", it is mostly subjective, not a rule set in stone. While it may work well for others with their style of work and concerns, it may not work the same...

    I would like to ask the OP for a bit of clarification.
    What was used for an anchor? Was it clamped?. I'm having a difficult time understanding how the blade pulled the wood and your hand through and...

    I'm not sure "where" exactly you are in your entry to turning, but at some point I would suggest this.

    Slightly different take on becoming complacent.
    Many, and I mean many, woodworkers are complacent in one form or another.
    The problem usually starts with tasks that are simple (low risk of injury)...
