We All Make Mistakes

Introduction: We All Make Mistakes

About: Come spend some time in the shop. I'm a hobbyist woodworker and professional computer geek in Northern California. I guess my projects will vary widely, and I have no clue what I plan to make next...

Look we all make mistakes, it's part of life. It's just I happen to have mine on film.  We need to remember that very few completed projects come without the errors.

Enjoy my goof ups, and be careful out there in the shop...

    Nice to see a 'blooper reel' from someone that does these Instructables. Hardly anyone shows any mistakes in their videos - and while some are funny, many are also good learning tools/ examples.

    Thanks, I feel a bit less fool after seeing your gaffes. I practice every day!

    As an ible I approve of this one. A lot of times it's good to know what not to do.

    some days you just stay in bed. the router on the round disc is funny as hell

    When routing an outside edge counterclockwise is the correct feed direction to achieve conventional milling. I don't want to say that they were going the wrong way, but they were going the wrong way if they wanted to do proper work.

    I though I had it on a stable enough surface for a climb cut. Obviously I needed to clamp it!

    Still... it was quite exciting!

    Why would you want to climb cut with a hand held tool? It's not even a good idea to do on a lot of milling machines. I know mine will jump if I'm hogging material. End mills are expensive to replace too.

    Most woodworkers laugh because there isn't a single one we haven't done at least once, sometimes once a day.
