Well I fount out Thursday afternoon the true meaning of the word "COMPLACENTLY".......
While working on a wood project on the table SAW I learned the meaning...............While cutting a piece of cedar long ways something went wrong, and it happened very quickly. My left (clutch hand) pointing finger was cut half off from the first knuckle forward, and my F%$# you finger was damanged pretty bad. The Droctor was able to sew up that finger, however the other part of my pointing finger remained inside my glove in my shop.
Point being....no matter what you are doing it's really easy to become Complacent, and bad things can happen!!!!!!!
I elected NOT to add a picture with this post
Be Safe out there
Well damn Kenny I am real sorry to hear that you hurt yourself. Hope all is healing okay.
I know what you mean about becoming complacent when doing something that has almost become second nature. I have had a couple of close calls using power tools. Normally just going too fast and forgetting to do all safety checks because you have done it 1000 times before
Hope you are recovering well & heal up good. Being complacent is never your friend ! How many times has it bitten all of us in the ass?!?! In one form or another.Like any good rehab do the PT and make sure to follow the doc's orders.Sending healing thoughts ! Take care of yourself.
OH yea by the way this is what I was making for the Wife, from old wood, when I mangled my fingers. I have been going twice a week to wound care and the digits are starting to look pretty good.
Be safe out there
Glad to hear you are doing better, ND !!
Looks like you have a talent for putting together some nice stuff.One of these days I hope to have a good workspace n try my hand at forging some metal, been watching too much Forged n Fire lately !!!
Keep at it,you could probably ebay or auction a lot of stuff online. I have known a few folk who sell their art online
stay safe & enjoy the ride.
