John Furniss, also known as the Blind Woodsman, is a blind woodworker. His wife, Anni, is a painter. The two artists form a partnership that is the stuff movies are made of. John lost his sight when he was 16. After many struggles, he took on the challenge of living life as a blind man. He learned to work on pianos, learned to turn wood to create beautiful pieces of art, and he met the love of his life, Anni. This episode of A Leg Up On Life is the remarkable story of finding one's purpose after tragedy.
