The following is a video about an Ethiopian dude who makes stools. Both his arms are “paralyzed”. Thought some woodworkers might find it interesting. Not trying to use it to make some kind of statement. Its just neat.

I have no connection to the man or the film. A random find.

Amazing. The human body is inherently the greatest of all works. It finds ways to create despite it’s limitations. This was a humbling, inspiring, incredible video. I will be sharing this with my students at school. Thank you
