Blind KC Man Uses Woodworking to Stay Positive


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Check out these amazing woodworking projects created by a former Kansas City firefighter who is blind.

Robert Sapp lost his vision after an accident over 30 years ago.

But after all the tragedy he saw while working at the fire department, it gave him a positive perspective to keep going forward with his life.

He picked up woodworking after losing his vision and makes everything from custom cabinets to bunk beds to armoires to humidors.

“It’s Spanish Cedar on the inside you take your thumbs lift it out like that – put your cigars in there,” Sapp said.

Sapp also donates some of his finished pieces to a charity that helps families of fallen first responders.

Sapp says he will never forget the generosity and help he got from his brothers on the department and says he’d never miss an opportunity to help them in return.
