      That sucks!

      I rammed a vertical grain fir sliver up under my ring finger nail on my left hand a few days ago and had to gig last night. Grr!

      I have to watch it because any infection that gets in my blood can settle in my fake knee area and cause some real problems. I can't even go to the dentisyt for a routine cleaning without first taking antibiotics....

          Well, thanks for the sympathy, SGV & DM.


          Took the first bandage off today, and it's not as bad as I thought it was going to be when I did it and looked down into the meat of the finger pad with the arterial blood welling out. Got kinda' shocky, but with wife's tender first aid and a magic cookie, I chilled and it's better today.

          And palm sides of hands heal fast.

          And I can still practice my timbales!

              True! I can and have!

              I wonder why I don't improve?

                That Doug Fir is some brittle ****************! A couple years back I had a contract to supply a restoration project with 36 4-panel doors, prehung w/Victorian style casings, plus 1500lf of 8" base including cap and shoe, and around 3000lf of Vic-style window casing w/built up crown heads, all in VG DF.

                I had 6000bf of Fir to process. By the 3rd week of the job, my hands were really sore from being a pin cushion, so to speak. I was glad when that project was over, and it was a good thing I wasn't playing at the time, because I don't believe I would have been able to.

                    Sorry to hear that, Bob. I did a dumb thing Friday and pushed a pushpin through my finger with the pin resting under my nail. Right hand middle finger so not a high demand digit unless I'm in traffic! Dooh! Yeah, felt like a dumbass.

                      I tried to sand the skin off my knuckle while I was making a new pedalboard last week. Sanded the nail down to where it's razor thin, too.

                        Now I'm carving the handle of the wand - kind of art nouveau bas relief design in mountain mahogany, one of the world's hardest woods (although this piece is fresh and rather soft).

                        Using the several little chisels I've scrounged from dentists and made over the years. Anyone care to bet on whether I'll run one of them into my palm?

                          Must be a geezer thing. I changed a set of strings on Sunday and gave myself "needle" pricks on three different fingers. Then later I was trying to fix the return spring on my hose nozzle and drove a screwdriver into my thumb. I almost had the full set of finger injuries.

                              Thanks DM, but a real man would no more use one of those than he would wear a pink feather boa! (mine's violet!)
