I have forgotten how long ago this was….. it was a sword year at Ashokan…… the year Peter Johnson gave a talk at Ashokan…..

I had been working on this seax ……months before the event I was pulling the handle off and this went flying ….. I heard it land ….I spent way too many hours looking for it and could have made a couple new ones in the time I wasted…. I gave up and the project got shelved… 

Yesterday I was looking for something else….I was wearing a head lamp to illuminate where I was looking …. My eyes swept over it and I looked back not believing what I saw …. There is was sitting on a roll of sandpaper under a shelf… right were it fell years ago… I suppose that is a sign that I now need to finish it…..

I recently found a micarta bolster that the polisher threw, cradled by a grinder belt hanging on the wall.
Searched about 2 hours, made a new one, found it 6 months later :lol:

I think you must finish it now.

The other day, the table saw threw an ironwood scale into the twilight zone. I spent an hour looking to no avail. Someday it will turn up

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.
