Yes, I have... took a surf trip back in '97 for 2 weeks... Oahu and Kauai... wonderful!

Nothing stopping you this winter eh? Cranking out the hits.



Oh.... so YOU'RE the one who jinxed me!



Sometimes shit happens way too quick...


Worked on a mask late this afternoon... went upstairs to get dinner started for the wife and I...

Started doing some dishes... washing a drinking glass... the skinny ones... shoved my hand in it with the sponge and twisted hard...


SNAP! SLICE! Shattered the glass...


Trip to the ER... tetnus shot, xray, stitches and a cut so deep on my left thumb knuckle I nearly severed one if not two tendons to my thumb...

No nerve damage, no tendon damage... need to keep the thumb immobile for 4-5 days... stitches out in 10-14

Lucky. I'm a lefty too.





I'll save you the gory shot... I can't unwrap it anyhow... but at one point I asked the ER doc about something in the cut... he said, "Oh that... that's fat...."


Way too deep of a cut.


I miss carving already.

Oh man Lake, that stinks! Get well soon! I really love what you've been doing with your most recent pieces.
Hang in there, maybe you can find some books to look through as you heal up.

OOOOOOh man that so sux for you. Give the remaining glasses the toss if their that weak, and invest in some old libbey's thick highballs!

That'l teach ya to be domesticated. Stay in the basement!


Get well rapidly and give the sink the ole stinkface!

Have a stiff rum n coke and take a load off. You should get sympathy for about 2 days, so, exploit it whilst you can. (JK)

Some good healing progress already... looking promising! Hoping for sooner than later...

Thanks again guys for the well wishes.

Very good looking hawaii mask.
Very bad injury. Take a rest for your hand, this will heal faster.
Hope you will carve again very soon, 'cause we'll miss your things

Benjamin.

That's one hell of a way to get out of doing dishes. You might want to stay off the carving for a few days after the stitches com out. I had stitches in my ankle from surgery that looked great and healed nicely, but two days after I go them out the incision opened up from doing a little more that normal movements. Take care of that wound, no more trying to see what the inside of you hand looks like, if you want to do that watch discovery health.

Holy crap Lake! Tell your wife that from now on she has to do all the dishes.

Take it easy and don't rush the recovery. Get well soon!
