Active Duty US Navy for 21+ years (as of spring 2018). I am on track for retirement in a few years....but never soon enough. And never soon enough to spend more time with my family.

I just started woodworking a few years ago and the bug bit pretty hard as it does with all of us. Now, having moved to a new house with a empty garage I've filled it up with tons of tools I have no business owning. Please take a look at my Workshop as I have outlined my woodworking journey so far.

Many projects and many good memories are waiting for me in the future.

Please drop me a line if you want to talk about the service, any of my posts, or projects...or just want to say HI and BS!

G’Day A’R’. I appreciate comments made on my projects (be they positive or insulting) and I make an effort to see who I am speaking to.

Now 607 days ago you claim to be almost retired yet you are talking about deployment… which is closer? end-of-deployment or fully-retired.
I think a welcome may be a tad late, however, I can part with a belated howdy in relative comfort…

From the “flurry” of your projects (well the only two in the last couple of months), you may have some spare time, so how about a bit of ego boosting and give us a tad more than… rank, name and serial number.

Also while your at it, your workshop is currently a blank canvas. Your two projects have put the under coat on but you still haven’t loaded the easel. A rundown of your environment would be nice (unless you have light fingered neighbors) so that,
  • you can come back in a few years (assuming you continue your LJ journey) and have a chuckle at what you had back then.
  • As I have said to others before… ”It’s nice to appreciate people’s environment and what they have to work with… that way at least I could tailor comments/recommendations accordingly… I would not recommend the purchase of a large plane when you only have room for a small chopper…

I do have to update my profile some…I’ll make that my weekend project. Only issue is, while on a surprise surge deployment, my photo inventory is kind of light…but I will do what I can.

Thanks for the welcome….and the howdy.
:-)

Ta.. helps us all to know you better and you will appreciate what lies you told… in 10 years time.

... on a surprise surge deployment…

If it’s local, have a beer for me… if it’s abroad… Rodger, stay a dodger!

... my photo inventory is kind of light…

Just the workshop thanks… I’m too old for other types!

LBD,

I’ve updated my profile a little….and my workshop a ton.

When I get back from deployment I will ba able to finish the shop and get to work on the great projects and memories ahead of me.

Thanks for prompting me to update that stuff.

Roger
