Losing My Power Tool Virginity

Hey y’all!!

I didn’t actually finish Yoko’s scarf last night (whoops sorry >O<)! I am almost done though :3, I always tend to forget how long it can take to finish things neatly, but I think it looks pretty darn kick-ass! I’m super excited to share it with you guys.

Anyway, last night I finally bit the bullet and started my journey into true prop making–by using a jig saw for the first time. Not gonna lie I was terrified out of my mind when I picked it up for the first time, I mean–guys, I LIKE HAVING FINGERS. Needless to say, I was being a big wuss and poor Josh had to psych me up hard core. BUT, I did it! I OFFICIALLY USED A JIG SAW—MY FIRST POWER TOOL EVAR. I’m practicing a bit, but you can see that I’m working on Yoko’s rifle grip :3. (also, confession? still slightly afraid of using it :’>)

Oh look, a picture to commemorate this momentous occasion! (IS IT ME OR DOES MY FREE HAND LOOK TOO CLOSE TO THE SAW?! <– stop being a pansy!)

    Haha. I feel ya! My boyfriend uses a lot of power tools for stuff and I’m usually thinking inside my head while he using them “Please. Please.Don’t hurt yourself.” But I’m definitely game for learning how to use them.

      Totally about the harm thing!!! Josh does it away from my sight, so I guess I’ve been lucky @^@!

      I think the most shocking part is how loud it is O^O!!! I decided to start small, I told Josh we should maybe start me on a hand saw and then work me back up to a jig saw :’D!
