    Well guys and gals. I am in Korea. This will be the last hurrah. I was able to get the Army to let me stay till my 20 regardless of my injuries. I will be here for a year. I plan on making friends with a Korean furniture maker and learning from him. I built a small bench before I left and that is being shipped along with all my hand tools. Sense I am here without the wife and kiddos, I plan on doing a lot of wood working. It will be different though. I am away from my 900 square foot shop and will be limited to my barracks room. I'm also going to do a bunch of videos while I'm here of the projects I will do to create myself a mobile/portable shop. I plan to hit the wood show and crafts fair circuits after I retire. So doing this will be very useful for my future in woodworking. Gonna be fun, and educational.

    Richard,


    Whereabouts are you in Korea?  I spent two years there back in 05-07 at Camp Red Cloud up North.  I really enjoyed the culture there.  If you've never been before, you can forget about your "personal" space as Koreans do not believe in that and like to pack in as tight as they can.  FYI, if you ever have a sweet tooth they have a pastry, and for the life of me I can not remember what it is called, it's in the shape of a peanut and has a vanilla custard in it.  I used to always find them at the subway stations.
