Very nasty, how many stitches did it take? Wow, you cut it with the table saw? It looks bad.

well  yeah... It's not that great...  It's about 3/8 of an inch short... they put a couple stitches in the nail bed ...  and a couple to hold the callous onto the front..  I did get the bone...  the xray don't look that good but the gal at the hand clinic  says it will be ok..  

  I have already customized a thumb pick... and it seems to work almost as well as It did before...

I wish I could unsee that. Am yet to maim myself or anyone else. I sometimes put half a big ocean fishing sinker in the box to balance it. Hacksawing through lead gets boring so I tried cutting one on the dropsaw. Thankfully no-one else was there. The projectile punched a hole through the bar fridge.

Didn't I see this pic on someone's tumblr page? That's your thumb you say? Did she fall for that line?
