Who says he hasnt let it go to his head, have you checked out his complete Powermatic Work Shop? I wanna find out whos ass to kiss to get a complete work shop. You all have all the cool stuff and Im just a beginner and I dont even have the basics, let alone a Powermatic Shop. Maybe he married Mr. Powermatic’s grand-daighter and got the shop as a wedding gift. Does she have a sister Marc? Or maybe her mom?

Yeah, that Sponge Bob pencil bit got me too….

I was at work (the office job) when a co-worker spotted a Blues Clues, or some-such bandaid on my finger. She was all… Oh, does scotty have a boo-boo?.. Yeah, I replied, Chisel to the finger… The expression/reaction on her face went from mocking to deep sympathy in .2 seconds. No need to tell her it didn’t really hurt, just wanted to keep blood off my project ;)

Ahhh…. the joys (and complete lack of self image) that comes with parenthood!

I had a Little Mermaid band-aid on a while back… I think I used to keep them around for when I’d watch my niece and nephew? I wasn’t paying attention when I grabbed a band-aid out of the box and it wasn’t until I’d already taken off the tabs that I noticed what it was…

Anyway, let’s talk about something more manly, please? I feel like I have to go out and buy a tool or something.

Congratulations Marc! That is great news.

Ok, so how do the rest of us get to be so famous? Afterall, we all can not be doing podcasts, can we?

My hope is to build something that a hollywood star buys, shows it to their friends, and I get a ton of orders for it. Ahh, the fantasy life is good..

Ethan, I think the have Batman, Superman or SpiderMan band-aids. HAHAHAHA !!!!

And Scott… I used to say “If I haven’t bled on the job, I haven’t been on the job.”
Whenever I used to mash my finger with a framing hammer ( a real manly boo-boo) if it didn’t bleed right away, I’d squeeze the finger til blood just gushed and then I’d flick it on the slab I was working on.

I also learned that God causes your body to do this interesting thing when you hurt yourself. The part you hurt goes numb just long enough for you to either cut the dangly skin off or pull it off and then just when you wrap a rag around it and tape it up with duct tape ( the Macho-est Band-Aid in the world), it starts to throb like nobody’s business. Or if you’re really tough a brown paper bag.

I was sanding the bottom of a bowl last night with a belt sander on my thigh and the bowl flew off and I got my skin of my thigh caught in the belt sander. I had to find something to cut the sandpaper and pull it backwards to get my thigh loose. Dang, that hurt, thats what you get when you work when you’re tired. Mistakes that can hurt you. Dumb mistakes that really hurt. I’m glad it was’nt a little higher! mike

Ouch… there’s a visual I don’t need!...

Today I accidently stabbed my right leg, just above the knee. (One more and they’re going to take my chisels away from me) Didn’t know it until later that I’d cut myself, as the pants I was wearing – firehose material from Duluth Trading Company, didn’t cut! A pair of jeans would have tore clean through, or run like pantyhose after a couple washings. I love these pants!
