He was diagnosed with brain cancer. After 3 brain surgeries in 6 months they seem to have it under control (still receiving chemotherapy). However, the surgeries left him unable to read or type on computer. All of his woodworking is shut down and all equipment sold.

While fighting his battles, his wife was diagnosed with cancer also. Surgery and chemotherapy seems to have hers in remission also.

This project was made by the members of the Stumpy thread and presented to them.

My best wishes to both of them. Hopefully her remission it permanent.
