A couple of months ago it was made clear to me that I would need some “minor” abdominal surgery.
I went the following week to discuss options with my surgeon. During the consult, he noticed in my list of jobs that I was a woodworker and out of the blue asked me my opinion on the Saw Stop Table Saw. I knew at that very moment that this was the man I wanted operating on me! :-)
This past Thursday was my surgery and while all went just perfectly, I am now “in recovery” which means no lifting more than 15 pounds for the next few weeks. Doh! Good news if I don’t want to take out the trash or clean Kitty Litter pans, but bad as far as woodworking goes!
That mainly only leaves me scrollwork to do.
So, to put everything together, I made my Doctor this small piece to say “Thanks”.
I figure the saying “Measure Twice, Cut Once” applies to surgery just as much as woodworking – I’m sure he will get a kick out of it!
