Cut Myself On My Carving Tool, But Not Badly Enough

Post  BillsBayou on Wed Mar 13, 2013 8:59 pm

I was doing some carving on a branch cut using a wood chisel. I wanted it nice and smooth so it would heal over nicely. I took the time to sharpen the tool as best I could using a whetstone.

I didn't cut myself by letting the tool get away from me. I did it by proximity. I was reaching into the tree, watching that I didn't snap off any new shoots. But not watching where the other hand was leading the chisel. Then I ran the corner of the chisel about 3/4" along the side of my thumb.

Not a bad cut. Only a bit deeper than a scratch.

But my pride was injured more than my thumb. Idiot me thought to myself "I did a bad job of sharpening that. This cut should have required stitches."

I'll be sure to do better next time.
