Website:

I am a woodworker in an electric wheelchair. I can stand, but not too long. Oh, by the way I have limited use of my left arm. My friends and neighbors are sometimes my left arm. Most of my projects are made from maple.

I have made my shop very accessible for me. I create most of my projects alone. I have a hydraulic cart to move things to and from my bench. I have many dollies to move projects or tools around.

I manage to overcome any barriers from limitation. My brain still may write checks that my body can't cash, but with persistence and a will to succeed, I will always continue to pursue my craft.

-- Be good or be good at it!

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
