Re: Cutting Davey board



Be sure your blades are sharp.
Be sure your back is straight.  Your hands will work much harder  than
necessary if your spine is flexed.  You need to put your precious hands at a
mechanical advantage.  There's a reason your mother told you to stand up
straight.  When you bend over try to bend at your neck and hip joints (not
waist or mid back).  I teach people to make a fist and notice the neutral
position of the wrist--then try to maintain that position when working with a
tool.
Hope this helps--from a physical therapist who loves books too, but earns
income by "fixing" all the aches and pains which occur secondary to lousy
posture, and buys some of the wonderful artist books.
