Two weeks ago August 17th 2008, after three years new into wood working I graduated to my first injury! No matter how careful you are,using all safety tools, jigs, features that you can master up, an injury can occur. I know now from experience, so does my skil xshop table saw with the new ryobi 60 tooth blade, and my right hand middle finger——whats left of it! Now I’m unable to design, create, show off any wood working, nor finish a repeated customers almost done 6 piece oak vanity cabinet, a new customers oak hall tree, a repeated customers picture frame. I have a growing list of future jobs to build, unable at this time to enjoy my hobby. Every day when I’m drinking coffee I take a little tour into my shop and watch the cobb webs increase. then later that afternoon I get ready for my regular job. wishing and dreaming of going full time into what I’ve grown to love and enjoy! WOODWORKING
My finger is healing, will get to keep it, go twice a week for hand therapy, hard to use only one hand, on the road to recovery——lesson learned.
