EMC Events - built his own workshop where he has
produced cradles, cabinets and clocks, as well as wooden toys for
children. That in itself is not particularly challenging except for the
fact he is totally blind.
Even more remarkably, the 64-year-old Kingston resident works with certain power tools to cut pieces of wood for his creations. Del Gabbo will be among the craftsmen demonstrating their woodworking skills at the 3rd annual Woodworking Show and Tool Sale to be held at the Brockville Memorial Centre from 1 to 8 p.m. on Friday, May 14 and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 15 at the Brockville Memorial Centre.
Sponsored by the Brockville Lions Club, the event will also include the ninth annual St. Lawrence Woodworkers Carving Show and Sale to be held in the building's community room.
At the Woodworking Show, Del Gabbo will have a finished rocking horse and will be making a children's toy - a kangaroo that hops. Being blind also makes Del Gabbo even more aware of the importance of safety in producing things to be used by children.
