Swearing sometimes helps to provide a quicker recovery.  When I'm chiselling, I half expect to slightly "modify" a digit... bonus if I don't!

Workshops mishaps happen. They're always a bit unnerving when they do. Ron, it was a combination rasp/chisel but I was using it as a chisel at the time so yeah... I guess it was a chisel. LOL.

As if to indulge in proving my point in my previous post, either that or Karma, (Is that a "thing"?), is punishing me for teasing you, I ran a 3/8 inch sliver into my hand sorting wood to make a canjo today. My utility knife and a pair of tweezers managed to get it out in one piece. (I hope, (grins!))

I should own stock in Neosporin.

Let me guess. chisel. I build CBG to large furniture have every power tool, but the lowly chisel has drawn more blood than all the other tools combined.

"especially when you're as uncoordinated as I am."

I'm not "uncoordinated". I'm just clumsy.

A regular occurrence on nearly every build I do, the smallest nick usually bleeds like buggery, when part of your medications include blood thinners, ;-{

It is exactly the one you're thinking Bob. And if you look carefully you can see a blurry rendition in the background. LOL. Don't worry... I didn't get any blood on the CBG.

I have a curved carpet needle and thread if you need it.  I hope that didn’t happen on the CBG I’m thinking you might have been working on.  I already deposited some blood on the neck of the one I’m building but not as much as you are leaking.

Comment by Poorness Studios on January 15, 2021 at 12:32pm

Ha ha. If you use power tools, you're bound to get a few scrapes... especially when you're as uncoordinated as I am.

Nearly forgot. We use duct tape. We use duct tape for everything.
