Default Good news - back in shop 3 weeks after quad bypass

No I wasnít a ball of fire, but I did manage to plane, drum sand, flush cut all sides and roundover route six cutting boards. My wife was an ever present watchful eye and helper. This may be the first time she observed the many steps needed to make a perfectly flat cutting board. Tomorrow Iíll do the sanding to get them ready to add finish and sell. Surgery or not stuff still sells and should be restocked.

Great to be semi-functional. Just great to be!

Happy you have returned. Do what you can. Take your time and enjoy.

And when you need to, sit down and rest.
We want you here for a long time yet.

Glad you are back at it. Make sure to follow the doctors instructions especially about the maximum weight you should be lifting. Torn stitches arenít something you want to deal with. I was amazed after my stint how much better I felt with a properly functioning heart.

Take the time to do the cardiac rehab, it makes a world of difference in getting better.
