Using your chin to stabilize your hand drill is acceptable. Supporting your groin firmly upon your vise is optional however.

From just about the age of 18 until the present day (now 33) I’ve had the same style of facial hair seen in my avatar.

I’ve determined long ago that completely clean shaven is not a good look for me, at all. I have the odd gray and white hairs poking out from my scalp and my face. Having a kid will do that to you. But despite the ever more apparent signs of age, if I remove the chin scruff I have the face of a 15 year old. It’s just not good. Years ago I chopped off my shoulder length long hair and said, hey, why not go for a completely new look and shave everything? I immediately regretted it, and my wife insisted that I grow it back post haste.

And although she protests the idea, at some point I have to least try rocking a beard this majestic.
