"Woodworking for Life" - Hand Tool Woodworking as a Therapeutic Activity.

Creating things with our hands is good for the body, mind and soul. It's good for the brain too.

In a former life, I was a Youth & Community Worker. So I love working with people, and have done a lot of work with those who are disadvantaged in some way.

Amid the many people I work with today, teaching traditional woodworking hand skills and techniques, there are a number of people who have Acquired Brain Injuries - mostly as a result of road trauma. Car and motorcycle crashes.
So we use woodworking as a therapeutic tool to help them rebuild their lives.

Dean Kennedy of Francisco Films here in Perth, Western Australia, recently crafted this beautiful little 4 minute video about this aspect of my work.

I invite you to view "Woodworking for Life".

Nathan was pretty happy with this lovely table he made!

  3. 2 days ago, I told about about Jim's WoodProfit course.

    ==> http://www.woodprofits.com?kslskd547fd

    I've spoken on the phone with Jim Morgan and I'm just
    blown away by his simple and effective strategy to
    make money using his basic woodworking skills.

    He started his woodworking business with NO capital,
    a few shop tools, and a lot of nerve, in a small
    10x20 foot space and grew it into a 1,400 space in
    the first few months while still remaining as a
    one-person business!

    See his story at:

    Now if you want earn some pocket money during this
    recession and run an easy to start and fun business,
    then you'll LOVE this guide.

    It contains all the information you need to start making
    money from the very first job...
