Well around New Years I slipped on the ice in Banff and did a nasty number on my shoulder. Torn rotator cuff is what they call it. I must work as I do enjoy eating so after a week of doing nothing I got myself back Into "MyHappyPlace? The Woodshop. Lucky for me, my next project is for 3 custom entry way cabinets that are a nice manageable size. My pace has slowed down but I have noticed that my attention to details has improved. However I did discover that there are a lot tools in my shop that require "Rotation " and this has proven to be quite challenging as I’m learning to use my left hand more as my right shoulder heals.
Cheers fellow Woodworkers. Here’s a pic that I want to share of some of the cranks that I’m rotating every day.

We hope your shoulder heals quickly. Maybe you’ll become a lefty while you’re healing!

Sorry to hear about the slip, hope its a fast recovery. Best of luck.

I can relate to how you feel having been off for several month with what is called a frozen shoulder and having been out in the shop .
Take it easy and let it heel but I know being in your happy place helps .


Sorry to hear about your fall,It’s amazing how many cranks we have in our shops.

Thank you very much for me he nice thoughts. I’m going to my yoga classes 3x a week. They are 1.5 hours each and I’m really feeling the strength coming back. It is an eye opener for a guy that works for himself to notice how much I rely on my physical health. Peace?

I had multiple dislocations of my left shoulder from hockey and eventually had surgery to tighten up my rotator cuff…was a miserable 6 months of physio and limited mobility so I hope your recovery is a lot quicker and smoother!
