Bruce Faulseit Hand
Bruce Faulseit was born without his right arm and wore a prosthetic hand as a child and has had numerous surgeries on his hand. The New Jersey native opened up about living with a disability in an interview with Disability Horizons.
Speaking about the use of a regular prosthetic hand, he said: “When I was 12, I went back and had one of the first electric prosthetics, which looked more like a real hand that opened and closed. I didn’t wear it much though because I found it so heavy and bulky and just didn’t feel right for me.
“I have also had numerous surgeries over the years to separate the fingers correctly in my left hand.”
In May 2018, Bruce shared a photo of his hands on Instagram, writing, “Most posts here are about about beauty in one form or another. I offer you my hands. I was born missing one and the other took a few surgeries to separate fingers and restore movement. They are beat up and scarred. The one is pieced together with skin from my legs and despite this I learned to work with them and make the most of what I was given.”
Bruce Faulseit Money for Nothing

“I was asked to be on BBC’s Money For Nothing in 2017 because I followed Simion Hawtin-Smith who is an upholstery expert on the show and I happened to comment on a photo of his cute dog,” he said. “He then looked at my profile and saw my chairs. He showed the producers my work and they contacted me!”
Mend It For Money
Speaking about how he became an expert on Channel 4’s Mend It For Money, Bruce told Disability Horizons: “With Mend It For Money on Channel 4, I was asked about that after they saw me on the BBC show. On my first ever episode, I transformed some slatted doors into a pair of chairs and I am still proud of that to this day.
“I also did a stained glass room divider and I did all the glass and led work myself. That was a new challenge for me but so fun.
“Plus, I replicated a pair of rosewood mid-century chairs and fixed the table that had been brutally chopped down. The contributor couldn’t tell the difference between the reproduction chairs and the original, which meant a lot.”
