Well, now the cutting board I’ve been working on definitely won’t be done in time for my niece’s wedding.
I was working on the router table, and after starting the router noticed I had left a tool on the table right next to the bit. (Stupid mistake #1.) So I reached in to remove the tool from the table… (Stupid mistake #2, and I bet you can see where this is going…) and hit the spinning bit with my right index finger and took a nice chunk out of the tip.
Now I’ve got this huge splint/bandage on the finger (typing this has been amusing to say the least), and will have it for at least two to three weeks. This halts a number of projects, and I may still be bandaged when I’m supposed to be helping with a culinary demonstration… :( :(
