No see, no wood

Dear friends, I am in the unfortunate situation that I have macular degeneration. I cannot see, wood, inches and centimeters anymore. Therefore I believe my woodworking days are over. I want to say thanks too all my friends and foe on this site for 10 years of fun. I will still enjoy watching your projects for as long as I can see them.

Tor and Odin are the greatest of gods.

I'm really sorry to hear that, pal. Will keep you in our prayers.

If you get antsy about not working the wood, perhaps carving is something that doesn't require a lot of eye power.

I'm so sorry to hear this, you have been a great contributor to the woodworking community for many years, God Bless.

Madts: In the woodworking group that I'm associated with, we make Children's toys that are distributed to charity organizations for distribution to needed children. Before I joined the group there was a toy maker known as "Blind Joe". He made toys by cutting wood and assembling what he wanted to make and he didn't let the lack of seeing slow him down.

You might want to consider having some items that you could change your focus toward a different outreach. Some items with a known dimension can allow you to set up fences and blade height so that you could continue safely. I made 180 Memory boxes this last year and I've made pieces of wood that have the sizes I need to cut. Blade to fence (Lock it down) Miter stop blade to stop (Lock in place). 

Wishing you many happy years in your chosen profession.

Wood is good

oh Madts ... I'm so sorry. 
I'm wishing you well on your journey and may you SEE for many years to come!
