        I didn't get much done yesterday, I managed to cut some of the ply to rough size.

        unfortunately, the dam handle slipped off on the way up and in my attempts to save the sheet I seemed to have pulled a muscle in my back. I'll give it the weekend to settle down and do essential stuff to prepare for the coming shelter in place like brew beer.

          I hurt my back years ago when I tried to save something heavy from falling too... Learned my lesson then. Protect yourself not some stupid inanimate object. I also get that chances are I will get caught by this again and again. Reflexes ridiculous sometimes.
