Working with various disabilities
I have a few, nothing really serious, but one in particular is the shaking in my hands and arms. Some days like today I can't trust myself with sharp tools such as chisels and such so I leave them alone and find other things to fiddle around with. Other times I find different ways to work around the shaking. For example, chopping a mortise hole. I use chisels for the job, but one of the first order of business when I have a mortise to chop I first take my time and cut a shallow groove the size of the motise hole which helps keep the chisel from wandering one direction or the other as I shake . I also have quite a bit of pain in my legs hip in particular so I quite often work sitting down in front of the bench. If I have to work standing I just wait for the pain to pass then get back to whatever I'm doing.
I'm just wondering how others deal with their disabilities and if it effects your work.
I figured it's time to change my signature so hold your breath. This is it.
