So i’ve been doing a lot of sitting on my tuckus and i’ve got the wild hair of an idea that since i’m now in a wheelchair and I am a diehard woodworker than why not try to help out the rest of the randoms out there that are in a similar situation? Problem with this is that I have no video editing, or making experience at all. I’m thinking about just starting with a basic introduction video introducing myself and outlining a few things that i’ll be doing in my videos and then moving on to making different episodes for building all sorts of stuff when you’re in a wheelchair. I’m not looking to get rich (allthough I wouldn’t mind if I did) but since being put in this chair i’ve really grown a keen liking to helping other people that are thirsting for knowledge. I have gotten a lot of inspiration on here from some new friends like Sheila Landry “scrollsawgirl” and Gary “wiz” Burns and my friends over at the stumpy nubs forum. I know there’s a lot of experience on this site and I’m hoping I can get some help from anyone who’s willing to share info or advice on making and promoting videos. Woodworking is going to be the main focus but who knows what could come up from cooking, (i’m a badass on the grill) to figuring out how to do things that people in a wheelchair normally have a hard time doing. Once i’m discharged and back stateside I could even go into hunting, fishing, guns, gun safety, marksmanship and all sorts of stuff. To be honest there isn’t a huge wealth of knowledge out there for those folks that are permanently at croch level and maybe it could be big, but it could also be a huge flop. Either way i’m going to give it a toss and see what happens, hopefully I can get a video put together soon and get some real good tips and advice.
