THE KATZ-MOSES WOODWORKERS WITH DISABILITIES FUND

We believe that woodworking should be accessible to ALL.

And that includes craftsmen and women with disabilities.

The Katz-Moses Woodworkers with Disabilities Fund (KMWDF) is a non-profit that proudly supports woodworkers who have physical and mental disabilities by providing the resources they need to grow their hobby, craft or business.

Designing and creating things on your own is one of the most fulfilling and healing activities one can take part in.

The sense of pride and self confidence that goes along with completing a project is something we can all relate to and the effect can’t be understated.

All too often, our fellow craftsmen and women with disabilities have a hard time obtaining the resources they need to pursue their passion and reap the rewards woodworking has to offer.

The KMWDF aims to use our vast reach to connect these makers with disabilities to people who can support them, body, mind and soul.

Whether these individuals are living with the effects of an accident, genetic handicaps, combat related physical disabilities or mental disability, we’re here to help.

THE BUILD UP INITIATIVE

Our goal is to help woodworkers with disabilities pursue their creative careers and passion.

And for many, workholding and moving objects around the shop presents a challenge.

This initiative aims to deliver devices that make time in the shop easier and more productive…

Because we believe woodworking should be accessible to all.

HOW IT WORKS

We’ve developed plans for 3 projects that assist with workholding in the woodshop:

  • Japanese workbench
  • One handed moxon vise
  • Gantry crane with chain hoist

As a volunteer builder, you can purchase the plans for the project of your choosing, with 100% of proceeds going to the charity.

After the project is completed, volunteer installers deliver it to a recipient.

We’ll connect recipients, installers, and builders to make the process seamless — and provide tax deductible receipts for material and travel expenses.

The only thing you donate is your time.

#WORKHOLDINGINITIATIVE

This is a project by woodworkers, for woodworkers.

As woodworkers, we should build each other up…
