We’ve all done it. Seen or ourselves commited really bad screw ups in the course of our woodworking. I’ll start by admitting i once knocked over a gallon of contact cement on a customers linoleum kitchen floor. And you don’t want to know what contact cement does to linoleum. Lets just say “it was wavy”. Lol.
I also watched a carpenter drilling a threshold in a door stoop once when the drill slipped. He gets up hollering “I drilled my *$#
! I drilled my *$#!”. Then proceeded to pull his pants down to show us all the damage. Luckily it was just a “flesh” wound requiring a few stitches.
Then there was the time i’d just gotten off the phone with an irate contractor, assuring him that his 30 tall wardrobe cabinets that were two weeks late being delivered were lined up to go on the truck. Then seconds later i hear a “Boom Boom Boom” coming from the shop as all 30 cabinets had apparently been lined up just like dominoes. Oh yea. It was bad.
So what’s yours? Lets hear em!
