Back in January, I spent a day hanging out with Niel Makielski. Niel is legally blind after losing his vision to macular degeneration, but has a very elaborate home woodworking shop in his basement where he works on projects ranging from watch stands to full home entertainment centers. After losing most of his vision, Niel developed a very unique and interesting workflow to allow him to accurately measure pieces of wood and find tools.

The pictures and video were great! Niel went to Battle Creek this week, people were coming up to him – the pictures were posted on the VA website!
Niel has the table finished and has finished a headboard for our grandson, Marek. He is getting ready to start one for our older grandson, Harlan.
You are welcome anytime, Niel enjoyed the day you were here.
Thanks again for everything! Niel and Myrna
My husband is now legally blind. Do you know what the magnification devices he is using? Thank you!
