Hello everybody,

My name is Henrie Schumacher (schummie) I'm 45 years old, I'm married whit a lovely wife and I have 3 great kids ( 9, 13, 17) and 2 dogs.
I was a police officer for 25 years till 8 years ago, I hate a accident during my policework and after 8 operation and a lot off hospitals I'm now so far that they call my handicapped.
During the operations the saw that my right knee was a mace and the can’t do anything about it and after the operation the doctors discover that I have also posttraumatic dystrophy, a pain syndrome in my nerve system.
Now I’m lying 85% off the day on my bed because off the pain. I have a lot off pain medication also a lot off morphine.
I hate to say it my there is less or nothing left off my life, I have my wife and my children but else . . . .

In the time before my accident i love to work whit wood, only the smell off wood brought me in higher atmosphere. I’m also a tool fanatic, i love tools.
Only is the Netherlands not really a woodworking country, if you now that we don’t have any woodworking magazine.
This country is more if we need something we buy it, we don’t try it to make it our self.

Therefore I'm now on this GREATH website, I love it.
I hope the learn a lot and maybe I get the chance to make something myself.
We want to try to make from our garage a woodworking shop, the I can make the little time i have, a little useful.
I’m searching in all the American woodworking toolshops off there is something I can use ( and can afford) and there is a lot.

Thank you for reading my little story. Sorry for my English, perhaps is there somebody how want to make a good translation.

Henrie Schumacher

-- Greetings from the Netherlands.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Hello Jeanmarc,

thanks for your reply and your great Dutch words. There are things I understand in your story but not
everything. I don’t now what “marqueterie” means.
But you make beautiful things, you’re really a master in woodworking.
I’m very brutal but have you see my cry for help, see
maybe can you help me in the further. How lives woodworking in France, are by you a lot off real woodworking stores?

Thanks for youre nice words,

Saluer Schummie
