Hi, I am recovering from a bad accident where I lost 4 fingers on my right hand. I am on the search for some less labour intensive projects to get me back into the game. I came across a site called ted's woodworking, if you have used it or have any knowledge of it some feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks, Andy.

Andrew, you do not have a profile, so we do not have an idea of where you are. If you are in Suffolk PM me and perhaps we can help.

Hi all.

New the forum.

Two stokes in Jan. 2015.

Only use of the right side of my body.

I managed Small projects until I was confident.

Until just recently my projects even showing on my YouTube channel was ok, but I feel now as I get better just putting adaptions to use tools safely and show other disabled people that's what's possible.

And as Ralph woodworking doesn't need to be focus on disabled people.

I've made large items (fish tank stands, cabinets etc.) and fully abled people are inspired.

It may take longer, more use of what challenge you, I.e. clamp wood or marking up one handed...there's always a way.

Apart from the Therapy I get its all about enjoying and learning.

Looking farward to showing what I've been up to in the workshop.

Thank you for allowing me to reply.



Wow, well done! Many people with disabilities are afraid to even try, they think that they will not succeed. The main thing is faith in yourself and a desire to do something. My friend was injured and for a long time was not confident in himself, did not want to move on. But seeing an example of people like you, he overcame it. Have a nice day!
