In 2015 I was contacted by a Wounded Warrior; a former U.S. Marine who was suffering from the the effects of an Improvised Explosive Device that blew up the vehicle he was in. He told me how traditional handtool woodworking was a type of therapy helping him cope with his struggles from combat. That encounter sent me on a mission to introduce the joy and peace found through the therapy of handtool woodworking to the brave men and women suffering from the mental and physical wounds of combat through what is now my Purple Heart Project. You can learn all about this project here. Through the generous donations of woodworkers like yourself we are able to give back and say "Thank You" to these Wounded Warriors who have laid their lives on the line for us. Please help me in this mission with a donation. 100% of your donation goes to serve these Wounded Warriors.
