Completely tasteless, or Cutting Edge? My Stumpynubs Tubafore Entry

I humbly submit my entry, entitled “Nubby Stumps: a Sacrifice to the Woodworking Gods”, to the StumpyNubs Tubafore Contest.

The woodworking gods demand sacrifice, either of flesh or of sanity. Often both. At least my body made it through this project in one piece!

The entry deadline is just minutes away; I feel like I’m under the axe!

I put my blood, sweat, and tears into this one… but now it’s time to relax!

Please judge ruthlessly.

And here’s a how-(not)-to video for the kids at home:

I would have titled it “Saw stop where are you?” This first time I’ve seen fingers laying in saw dust thinking it’s funny. Well done.

Ha ha ha!!!...I hope this not your last project considering lesser fingers left (surely not my prayer words).
Unique project though, good luck!
