Following Daltexguy and Moshel I thought that I would throw in a time consuming and flesh damaging mistake of mine.
You have seen them in my recent blog about a End Grain Cutting Board. They are the cauls I used in the first pic.
These are supposed to be legs for my Double Duty Tablesaw Workbench project:
However I modified the height of the workbench but neglected to make the needed modifications for the lacement of the dadoes on the legs. I actually made this mistake twice! I reused the second set of legs for my Lathe Cabinet Project:
In amongst all of this fun I was using a very very sharp 3/4” chisel to flatten the bottom of these very large dadoes and had the chisel chatter across the bottom and as I lifted the chisel up and I brought the corner of the chisel though the outside of my left index finger resulting in 7 stitches. The doctor thought that the wound was made with a scalpel (yes I was very proud) as I explained how I managed a woodworking accident without power.
The good news was that the third time was the charm.
