William my friend, bend over. You’re abut to get a size 14 suppository for that darn fool act.
The Almighty Carpenter gave us all just ten fingers each and we’re supposed to show up at the Heavenly Tool Room with all ten of them intact! Naughty naughty! Bad boy!
Okay, now that we have that out of the way, as a fellow wood worker with serious health problems, I can sympathize with the urge to let inspiration to take over, but we gotta remember we ain’t what we used to be and we have to slow down a bit and let our bodies heal. We owe it to those close to us and to the craft to stay around as long as possible to pass along what we’ve learned. No fair committing suicide an inch at a time.
I’m truly sorry to hear you injured yourself and hope you heal up quick and are back at the scroll saw soon, but first take care of yourself! Okay?

By the way, that thing is looking outta sight! I’m really looking forward to seeing completed, without the “personal stain” effects.

Thank you tiny, but you missed a very important point that will not allow it to keep me away from the saw. I don’t feel it! It took me about twenty minutes to get the bleeding to stop. Some of the meds I’m on thins my blood, so any bleed is a bad bleed. Once it was stopped though, the only thing I gotta do is keep it clean and covered. My kids think it’s cool that I can not feel anything with that hand. If I allowed them they’d have me doing all kinds of crazy thing just to show people I can. They don’t seem to comprehend that even though I don’t feel it, damage to the human body still isn’t a cool thing.

Something I will do from time to time just to weird my brother out (as long as my back is having a good day) is to grab something that won’t move, and pull inwards towards my body with that arm. That same arm has long titanium rods in it. Pull hard in the right direction and that arm will flex about three inches over the length of it from elbow to wrist. I don’t know why, but that one gets my brother every time.

Coming along fine William. I cant wait to see it with some finish. Not red, it get to dark with time. That is sure one way to sign your project with dna. You if you think about it every project done has the mans sweat and or blood on it so it is signed with there own dna. Take you time, your working your way to the next one. I still like the color transition of the wood it looks like sapwood.

Well I’m making a guestimation here, but if everything works out alright and I can work on it every day, it’ll be about a week before I can start applying finish.There’s still the topped that has a thirty degree flare out to it that goes on top that has scrollwork on three sides of it and a fence around the top. There’s still three shelves on each side of the middle fourth level cabinet. Each of those has the canapy with gussets, fence and columns. I’m also guestimating a day for all the little sanding here and there on things I’ve missed, noticed, and made note of during construction. Hey. It happens. Also it’ll take probably a day to remove all hardware and disassemble again.
