Q. Do other woodworkers, especially pros, get carpal
tunnel and if so, how do you handle it?
(Michael Dresdner) "Sure we get it. And like others, we either suffer through it or get operated on, depending in large part on just how bad it is and how much money or medical insurance we have. Since I have little of either of the last two, I have been putting up with it, limiting my physical activities that affect it, and spending more time writing answers to questions like these than to doing the woodworking I love. To some extent, what they say is true: biology is indeed destiny."
