Projects in Afghanistan
I also included some of the practical furniture I made for the guys and girls in my unit. Furniture was virtually unavailable down there and you had to request it to be made by the civilian contractors which would have taken weeks. Lumber was free for the asking. All I had was a tape measure, a speed square, a couple speed clamps, a circular saw, and an 18v drill. Everything was held together with screws or nails.
