Engineer Castle

It’s been too long since my last project, being deployed kind of put a damper on my woodworking interest. Leaving me only the internet to get my fix. That’s when I stumbled upon The Wood Whisperer! Marc opened up a whole new world eventually leading me here. Which got me off the computer and out to the scrap yard grabbing up old plywood and 2×4s. That and a 8 piece Cordless Dewalt set are the only thing keeping me sane until I get home to do some real woodworking and turn this into a Hobby. I’m thinking an end grain cutting board would be a nice start.

Oh, almost forgot, this was my first project this year. An Engineer Castle for my Company Command Post. It was a fun project, and taught me a lot of patients, something you need when supplies are short and Home Depot is just a little more then a quick ride to town.
