Well day two has been and gone,,
Nearly all of the first 14 are glued up and have dressed and cut the pieces for the next 4. well almost..
A small hiccup occurred as I was ripping the last board of silver ash,,, tip of left thumb touched the spinning 12” saw blade in the table saw,, lost a little off the tip and some of the thumbnail bed, I shouuld have taken the advice given by a number of jocks in their comments… take care and work safely.
LOML drove me to the Emergency Department as I was a little in shock,,I couldn’t believe it.
Luckily I work there and was taken straight in for triage and a temporary dressing applied.
The Director of the unit himself came and saw me [on a Sunday afternoon no less]... luckily,, no real damage,,, a little loss of blood,,,Off work for 10 days and as I have some time off after that ,, the thumb should be fully healed by the time I get back to the job at the Hospital,., the Thumb will be a constant reminder that the saw always wins.
I would like to thank the staff of the Emergency Department of the Caboolture Hospital for the wonderful prompt atttention I received even though they are underfunded and understaffed.
Good news is that I have the next 25 days off at home.. Bad news limited use of the left hand for a few days,
So Karson I am turning lemons into lemonade,, not the best way to get extra time in the shop lol.
Any way I will soldier on and keep to the challenge after a couple of days rest.
Mike aka Jockmike2 you are right,, will be more than 10 different styles but how many exactly I don’t know.. I have not designed them Yet.
Sorry no pics yet but will try to get some today and post in the next episode LOL
