OK, what happened was this. I’d been watching an issue at work that was going to eventually make its way to me, thinking about how I would deal with it when it did. So I wasn’t really focused on the woodworking that much. I realized that with the trouble the drawknife was giving me (diving and reversing grain), there was enough wood to remove off this piece that I’d saw it the rest of the way down to size. In drawknife mode, it apparently didn’t occur to me to just saw off one side, rather than both. It did occur to me, just about when I got to here, and decided I needed to photograph and record this moment of stupidity.
