Mark is now paralysed from the chest down and in a wheelchair.
This obviously does not stop Mark from making the most of life and has the most wonderful positive attitude.
Mark rang me to book in for woodturning Tuition and I must admit I had no idea what it would involve I had never seen anyone that is partly paralysed let alone taught one woodturning.
Anyway we arranged for Mark to come today and see how we both got on. My attitude was this is going to be a new experience for both of us so lets make the most of it and enjoy ourselves this we did.
I have learnt a lot from today and realise now that there are improvements I can make so that turning will be easier for Mark on hi next visit.
Next time I think I will make a raised platform so that Mark can us my Nova lathe the swivel head would solve most of the problems we encountered
Here are a few pics from today.
One of the things I need to do next time is get the lathe even lower it is on its lowest setting here or a raised platform for Marks wheelchair
