I've cut myself, I've glued fingers together, and I've been impaled by miniature spears. The last seems to be missing from the poll options despite being mentioned in the question.

This is a dangerous hobby!

Other: Cut my hand on a piece of broken acrylic while trying to cut said acrylic using the "score and snap" method (not recommended by me now). I was then forbidden from ever cutting acrylic again by SWMBO.
Now I buy Lexan/plexiglass, and either have it pre-cut or team up with a buddy with a table saw and blades for cutting plexiglass.

Have you considered putting on a pair of shoes?

At that rate might want to find a safer hobby.😁

Another vote for being impaled by spears, usually just under the fingernail so your eyes water.

We don't need no stinking shoes!

I mean, how else are you gonna find the stuff that fell off your work table onto your 70s vintage shag carpet?
Just gotta suck it up!!

Not impaled by spears but by swords. A couple of guys I game with flatten strait pins and use them as swords. I have had a base of cavalry imbedded in my hand.

The odd cut, burn and glue mishap

But I live on a farm, so that is way safer than puttin' up fences and clearing the back '40

It's a dubious honor to be the only one who's gotten glue in his eyes.

At the third cut I stop trimming flash for the day.
