Well folks I just wanted to post this contributing to my own issue in life and many others. This month is epilepsy awareness month so I’m getting out my purpleheart (lavender is the epilepsy colour) and working away to show my support. Thk you for your time.

Great cause Mark, keep up the good work. Are you going to try and duplicate that ribbon in wood? That would be very challenging!

Keep this in front of everyone, Mark. Only then can people be aware of the difficulties the folks with epilepsy face each day.

I also have epilepsy, been dealing with it the last 8 years. I wouldn’t wish it any of my enemies. It’s a hard thing to diagonice and control. Mine will never be under control. I’m hopeing to get another 15 years of good woodworking before I can’t do anymore..

Thanks for the post:
