« Part 3: Overthinking things without any actual woodworking Part 4 of From total noob to somewhat skilled (hopefully) series Part 5: Healing...2 steps forward... a stumble backwards »

A short story made even shorter…

I was in a car accident – sprained and cut my right hand/forearm, seriously sprained one ankle and strained ligaments in the other knee. Kinda hard and probably unsafe to work near spinning metal objects for at least a week.

I’ll be back working when I can lift a sheet of plywood by myself.

Late in responding. Sorry.

Healing will occur; it’ll just take time.

Thanks for the good wishes.
