I would like to thank everyone for the great outpouring of Friendship. I am passionate about people and children and found a way to help both.

For everyone that is interested about Loving Hands Memory Boxes, I have an email address:
I also have a paypal account of my own, however, I am trying to get one with the CLUB only. I do not want to many donations going into my personal account makes me uneasy and then to swap funds over later.

I already have a list of how the boxes are to be made for each type of need. I am also working on making Urns for deceised veterans with no family that get creamated and put into a cardboard box also. I found this out from my Local VA rep after he found out what I was doing.

I still need someone to make me a website for this project, however, I do not have much money until the VA gets everything approved for my 100% disabiliy.

If anyone wants to be part of this compassionate project to help the hurting, I sure could use help not only in building boxes, but to also answer emails, keep track of donations, and take care of the communication to everyone, that would be 3 individuals to help here.
I still have alot of learning about woodworking and mostly about handtools in every catagory. The VA gave me equipment all from Grizzly. A 10” Cabinet saw, 17”resaw Bandsaw, 15” Planer with sprial carbide heads and a 6” Jointer with sprial carbide heads, and a Porter Cable router 7918 with a Mast R Lift.
I started my woodworking on a Lathe Delta 46-460 a beautiful lathe to use and learn on and that is the extent of my tools. I have had recently a donation of a Low angle block plane and a 4 1/2 Miller Falls plane so far, but do not know how to use them yet.

So anyone that has books or DVD’s on woodworking, planes, handtools, or box making would Most Greatly help. I will buy them and pay shipping if it is USPS cheap way.

Thank You to all my new friends and I look foward to a long and lasting friendship here.
All the Best

Arlin, I’m working on some of our local vets and there are some old Vietnam vets her willing walk the walk for you. I’m working on getting you help in setting up your equipment as well. I’ll email you on this as it progresses.
From my personal experience with the VA, I am stunned with how they have came through for you. Well, done. You have the equipment to start a dream shop, so that is where we can start. I’ll give you a call after supper your time.
