WOW; Thanks very much Ken. Here is proof that a wheelchair-bound individual can be a successful woodworker. It is also wonderful that a seriously injured vet can find new meaning in woodworking. I know too well some of the challenges he faces, and I wish him the very best for his health his family including his father's cancer, and his future.
He is the living embodiment of your signature line.
What I hope he does not face is the lack of opportunity because someone else thinks he might not be able to do something, and that he is not confronted by someone who expects him to perform as any able-bodied person without making the necessary accommodations.

"Teach your children what we have taught ours, that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children."
