Don’t worry. All of our wives say that.

Welcome to LJ’s. After making a few projects for your wife she will see that it is a good investment and keeps you out of trouble. Blood may be one of the fastest way to learn something but not the route you want to go. There are some brilliant people on here that can teach things the right way. Enjoy the shop and retirement.

Blood is very bad!

It gets on cast iron tools and causes rust! (BAD!)

Good thing is you can usually scoop up enough sawdust from the floor to pack the wound and stop bleeding on the tools.
