    @pondman Speedy recovery of your temporary handicap, but could the down time perhaps make room for the Pondman (build) family christmas card photo session?

    Your right, its not a good idea with rotating machinery, I'm always slicing through my fingers at work with knives and the like :ninja: so that's what I'll be using those for and also when I go sea fishing :hmmm:

    Oh, scarred, blood spattered fretboard. It matches the routing horror perfectly. Love it.

    I'm going to pretend that the white dots are bone-fragment inlays.

    :eek:

    Oh Jesus... Are the white dots actually bone-fragment inlays??

    Sick on so many levels and those fret-ends look like butter.

    Keep up the heal to spoil ratio! :metal:

    Way to get back on the horse man! That stitch inlay is so fitting.. it hurts, lol!

    Appreciate you sharing the accident, after seeing your post ive decided to upgrade my thicknessing jig (the scariest part of routing for me). I'll be using this design, its a lot safer than my current setup (keeps finger away from the blade, i shudder when ithink about how close ive been to an accident with the jig im using).

    I was also planing on getting one of those tube style trimmer/routers but think ill just stick with my hand held plunge router, better grip and from what your saying that should save me from the issue you had.

    Again, thanks for sharing!

    For some reason, all of this is reminding me of the MadTV skits mocking home improvement types.

    Looks like pretty clean recovery. Has the last bump passed already?

    Sorry I totally missed this! Glad it wasn’t worse! Looks to be healing well so wishing you a speedy recovery!
    Those blood drop inlays are amazing!
