Holiday Gift Ideas: Table Saw and Stitches

Still trying to come up with just the right Christmas gift for that special man in your life? Well then … how about a table saw with complimentary stitches?

I promised these photos a while back but didn’t deliver. I was saving them for a special occasion, and who can deny that RED is a very festive color.

Long story short, I was ripping a few long pieces of maple, the saw blade was a little dull, hit a knot, and the wood kicked back … doing a little damage in the process. Yes, I did this to myself. [sigh]

Did this little table saw accident hurt? Nope. Suck it up, bitch.

Waiting almost 5 hours to see the only ER doctor that’s busy seeing people that think it’s appropriate to clog ER rooms when they have the sniffles … irritating.

Getting 15 odd stitches to mold my finger back together before freezing kicked in … somewhat unpleasant.

Getting the stitches dug out by a nurse after six weeks when my finger healed over the stitches … RIDICULOUSLY pass out worthy. I’m not embarrassed to admit, I did turn a few shades of green. However, as you will see – if you’re brave enough – this story does have a happy and somewhat impressive ending.

Special thanks go out to the ER doctor working that night at the Ajax Pickering Hospital, part of the Rouge Valley Health System in Ontario, Canada. You took my finger that looked like a blooming flower – but less pretty – and pieced it back together.

Nice work, if I do say so myself.
