Just wanted to inform my fellow LJs that I’ll be heading over to Afghanistan for the next year and might not be online as often as I would like to keep up with everyone’s cool projects…

Keep in touch if you can…

Have a great trip and keep your head down. I’ll be humming “Hearts of Oak” for you until you get back.

Go Navy!

Be careful over there, stay safe, and may God keep you in the palm of His hand.

Thank you all for the thanks and well wishes… I am sure my time overseas will fly by quickly. I’ll take your advice and duck and eat dirt as required and do whatever I must to stay safe so I can come home and continue with my favorite hobby of Woodworking…

I’ll do my best to keep you all updated on any interesting events…
