That is also fantastic.
Thanks Doc!


Below are some other pieces I completed a while ago.....
I have quite a few more, but haven't got around to taking photos.

I am excited about the stuff I am setting up for in the shop!

I managed to slice my left index finger very badly cutting veg on Monday night, possibly the worst cut I've ever given myself. I patched it up pretty well and yesterday morning it was still pouring blood like it was coming out of a tap (sorry, faucet :eyes:) So I ring 111 (the non emergency line) as to whether I should go to a walk in centre or A&E. I got through pretty much immediately and the guy was very professional about everthing including asking me if it was self harm etc...Then I got call back from a GP 10 minutes later double checking what was wrong who then advised me to go straight to A&E. Pretty obvious you're probably thinking but I didn't want to burden the health service anymore by just going straight to A&E. Anyway, I arrived, got my temperature taken at the door, was given a mask and was in an out in half an hour. They couldn't glue it or stitch it as all the skin had gone too :jasper: The nurse put some special covering over the wound which has gone hard and (hopefully) it will clot within 7 days.

Anyway, our NHS is amazing, we're very lucky to have it. Hard working and professional.

I hope it’ll heal properly, mate. I don’t think you should’ve waited THAT long, but it doesn’t surprise me that you didn’t want to bother professionals who are dealing with that other little emergency...

And I can also testify that your NHS is beautiful. Don’t let those twats shred it to pieces.

The thought of all that blood made me queasy. I think I would have fainted it if that happened to me.
Good you got it taken care of and are on the mend. I wish you speedy healing!

I don't advise using a mandolin anytime soon. It's very high risk for slicing off skin. :lol:

Just took my dog for a 5am walk and saw a sign on my neighbors lawn that said: "If you see my kids outside crying and picking weeds, just keep driving. They're on a field trip." :lolol:
