As a tool geek this gives me a great excuse to get a compact router and do a few projects. I enjoy making things for my Army coworkers and buddies and relatives. No longer active but I still work for the Army....only thing I have known my entire adult life.
I am interested in routing out Army unit patches and such on projects. Instead of using the patches I want to learn to use the router and then paint my projects. I just made a magnetic bottle opener for me nephew who recently returned from Afghanistan. I hope to learn it well enough to replace the patches and badges I put on them. I do not sell them....it's not about the money.
I plan to do a lot of reading as I choose a router and bits to do this with.
A really good friend of mine is a commissioner in Kansas City, KS. It is a really interesting place to visit, and I have to say I really like some of the small towns there. Just a little too hot and muggy for me.
I was stationed in Ft Riley in 1970-71. I must say that I've really never missed that winter wind out there!
