Hi, I’m Chris, also known as the Blind Wood Turner.
Losing my sight was a massive disability to come to terms with. However, I refused to give up and, through interests such as wood turning, I am able to constantly challenge myself and exceed the expectations of what others perceive disabled people are able to accomplish.
Part of the reason for my YouTube channel is to inspire and motivate others demonstrating that, no matter what their circumstances, it’s possible to achieve their full potential. It is important not only to tell people but to show them that tenacity, self-belief and passion can help overcome seemingly impossible obstacles.
I now travel around the country speaking about my experiences and giving public wood turning demonstrations. I love to share my passion for wood turning. It is a wonderful art form and craft and I put a unique spin on it!
What the mind can perceive, the body will achieve.
