    Oopsie!

    I was working on the wa handle for my honesuki project yesterday, and decided to slice the handle lengthwise and cut a groove in each half to provide a place for the tang of the blade. The first side was no problem, however I had a small miscalculation on the second half. I now have a nice groove in the side of the middle finger of my left hand.
    The good news is that the handle piece was not destroyed so I don't have to start over from scratch!

    They tell me that that it will fill back in! I have converted to almost exclusive hand tool use, butt that blade on the table saw was just the perfect thickness for the slot that I wanted to make..............

    ouch! a friend reciently was doing some hardwood flooring for a customer who was sitting on his shoulder, a seconds inattention, he got a nice groove down the center of his middle finger as a reminder. They had to remove some bone, but the plastic surgeon fixed it up nice. He just got no sensation in his finger tip now.
