ya, i couldn't stop thinking on the way home, take your time, and try not to cut your fingers off, but really, a planer is one of the safest tools cause the blades are fairly out of sight and covered, unless you get your sleeve caught under the roller *AAAHHHHHH* that's why i'm always in T shirt..

Actually after havin a look at your "WWW" and knowing how some parents think she's impressed with the effort you've put into your current projects, enough to try n help you move forward which is really cool.

Personally I've seen the body to fretboard transfer of design before but yours has much better taste. With the simplicity you gotta touch of class going on there bro :D

Use it in good health B)

Ditto that.

My father-in-law lost the tip of one finger on the planer. His hand slipped, and off came the tip of the birdie finger. Ouch.

Needless to say, this would suck really bad for a guitarist. :D

Maybe so but it can still do an amazing amount of damage, very quickly to your fingers. Ask my father. About three months ago he nicked his pinky on the planer. It took the tip off just above bone and blood everywhere. I had to rush through from work and take him to the hospital. $1000 worth of plastic surgery on his finger was the final result of a seconds inattention and he had the guard over the blades.

Thank goodness it was on one of his projects he was working and not doing some work for one my guitar projects or I would never have heard the end of it.
