Good Evening LJ’s,
With woodworkers safety week fast approaching I want to tell what happened to me today and the true blessing it turned out to be.
I haven’t been posting around here lately due to me getting into my busy season and other responsibilities like my church, home, You get the picture?
Well today was an uneventful day of working all day cutting grass at my church, however it is when I came home and went to my shop that it began. I received a phone call to start another Adirondack chair I was so eager to get it done I decided to start it tonight, My first mistake I made was I was reaching for something I dropped and BAM!! I struck my head against the bandsaws iron table, after a few swear words later I started back working Now with a slight headache and dizziness This my friends was the second mistake as I was cutting out the top of a slat when before I knew it I made contact with the blade I LET MY GUARD DOWN
I just wasn’t paying attention and after hitting my head I was feeling bad.
Well my friends I did receive a nasty bite mark however My lady friend reviewed it and determined it wasn’t very deep or bad so no trip to the hospital but a very painful lesson indeed, A wake up call, and a thank you upstairs, for protecting me, in light of it Please if you don’t feel up to it don’t go out there use my mistake as a wake up call too.
No I am not going to post bloody photos or bandages I don’t believe I need to however after this I am gonna try my best to make sure this never happens again.
All I ask is for my fellow woodworkers to be safe out there and please don’t post any gross pictures on this post I just can’t stand to see them and after seeing one of my own I had enough.
Take care :)
