Many of us are allergic to the adhesive on some tapes. Conventional tape kills a layer of my skin in less than a day. I keep a variety of bandages and tape on hand because cuts are just part of woodworking.

One thing that has helped is developing a habit of never pulling or pushing a blade toward skin. Takes a little attention but better than bleeding, especially if taking blood thinners.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

One of the 1st lessons my Grandfather taught me was "NEVER whittle toward yourself".

I heard that right after I stabbed my wrist, not before I guess I was 8 or 9 when that happened.

Workmanship is not perfection; it is how well you can cover your mistakes.

A case where "better late than never" was easily beaten by 1 trial learning. Hopefully no permanent damage.

Nope, the only thing permanent is the scar. Oh and "Never cut towards yourself" permanently etched in my brain.
