Ok so i was reading a blog or project here can’t remember which, but it reminded me of a funny thing that happened years ago in my shop. Maybe some of you could chime in on one or two of your mishaps in the shop.
So i had this old router table that i had made and the cross members for the legs had holes drilled in them to hold all my router bits. Nice and easy access for quick changes, well i never expected what the hazards could be until it happened…...
At the time i had a very cramped shop, having to share with my wife and her stained glass shop plus we had lots of other things stored in there. I was sanded down some cutting boards that i was making for a craft show i was going to be working soon. I dropped something off the table (pencil, sandpaper, can’t remember what) when i bent down to pick it up my right cheek experienced mass pain. When i say right cheek i mean the one that you sit on not the one on your face. It was summer so i had shorts on instead of a more protective jeans (lesson learned). Well as i’m sure you have guessed the router table had been behind me and one of the bits that was in the cross member sliced a good 6” long cut in my cheek. There was blood running down my leg like Niagara falls. After the initial shock from the blood went away and the reality set in and my wife and daughter couldn’t stop laughing and my misfortune. There was all sorts of sayings for me the next couple weeks since i couldn’t hardly sit down. I had cut my self a new crack, don’t let the door hit you where the good lord split you kinda had a different meaning.
Anyway hope this makes someones day, and please have a laugh about it thats what life is all about..
talk to you all soon..
