makeasks MAKE Asks: Incidents and Accidents
Make: Asks is a weekly column where we ask you, our readers, for responses to maker-related questions. We hope the column sparks interesting conversation and is a way for us to get to know more about each other.

This week’s question: What mishaps or near-misses have you had while working on a project, and how did you learn from them?

I was once building a telepresence setup and stereotypically hit my thumb with a hammer. It had to be lanced and I learned to try not to put myself into any more knuckle-busting situations.

Post your responses in the comments section.
