About

I am a retired Army veteran with severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I cannot be around crowds of people. This make employment difficult. I do woodwork as a hobby. I enjoy teaching my sons how to make things and create "something from nothing." 

I plan to buy a CNC router, bits and other woodworking tools. I already have a workshop. I just lack the proper tools. The CNC machine is quite expensive as well as software, replacement bits. I also plan to buy a small covered trailer to pick up materials.

The CNC router can also carve plastic and other materials. This is a market that is nearly untouched due to the cost of equipment and software.

This would be great for Soldiers and veterans that want to make a plaque for PCS/ETS/Retirement or memorial pieces for the fallen's loved ones. Pieces can be made from any photo or drawing. The software can scan it and make it 3D, engrave or both. A percentage of my proceeds from side projects will be donated between the wounded warrior program and to help local homeless veterans.

Risks and challenges

I see no challenges in this project. I am confident that I will be familiar with the machines within a few weeks. By the years end I will be producing unique carvings that will have customers coming back for more. I also plan to coordinate with the wounded warrior program and gold star families to make plaques or carvings for their injured of fallen Soldier. I am retired so I can give this my full attention.
