What number are we up to at this point? About 300? Anyway, this one came to me yesterday in the shop.

You know you’re a lumber jock when you drop a chisel and as you catch it, by the blade of course, you think three things; (1) “thank God I didn’t chip the blade”, (2) ””at least I didn’t bleed on this work” and (3) “wow, that cut is so clean I won’t even need stitches!!”

Nice one! You can find the current number of Lumberjocks on the homepage. It looks like we’re up to 663.

Too late I’ve already done that. (Just kidding) I waited for chip for 3 days and he didn’t post it so I did. But, I gave him credit for it.

Been there…..... cutting finger on jointer blade and still working on the jointer, but making sure I did not bleed on my oak (salvaged from a hardwood pallet)!
It will make a fine box this Spring.

I’m sure a lot of us have been there. I cut my finger with the table saw when I first started woodworking. I poured some peroxide on it, wrapped it up in a clean shop rag, and then proceeded to clean the blood off of the table saw before going to the emergency room. You gotta have priorities, right?

At least the blood will sand off of the lumber…

I’ve always thought band-aids were for keeping the project clean… so you could keep working until it was convenient to clean the wound or whatever ;)
