I know alot of Cabinet Makers and Woodturners but there is a chap who lives in our village and all I can say is that his work is just amazing!

What is more impressive is when you learn that he is disabled and only has one arm!

We all tend to moan about our aches and pains but this man puts our own issues into perspective

I salute you Mr Foden!

I can't imagine a craft which would be rendered more impossible than woodturning by having the use of only one arm. Just mounting the piece alone must take some ingenuity. But those pieces put most 'able-bodied' turners to shame. Genuinely amazing. It just shows that genuine talent doesn't recognise obstacles.

Rodger Foden used to live in Buckinghamshire before moving into our village a few years ago.
