Hi everyone, I was browsing my Wood magazine July 2011 issue. They are advertising that in the Sept 2011 Issue (to hit the stands in july 5th) they have an article titled “Woodworking on wheels: An American hero and wheelchair woodworker shows a thing or two about shop set-up”. I thought this may be of interest to some members. I recently saw a couple of blogs and forum topics related to this. Just figured I would pass it on.

Hi Camper,
Just to add to this. The man in the article is none other than fellow LJer Chuck Isaacson

It was a lot of fun and a great honor working with Chuck on that article. Chuck was a career Army flight engineer with multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan under his belt when he was in horrible helicopter crash. Shortly after his recovery, he caught the woodworking bug bad, but was having difficulty finding a lot of solid information about woodworking from a wheelchair. He took it upon himself to put together a shop that is sort of a proving grounds for accessible woodworking.

That issue should start hitting mailboxes and newsstands in early July. Hope you folks enjoy it.

Any one know if this magazine is available on news stands in Canada? I am a beginning woodworker who also lives their life in a chair. Interested to see this article.
