MINSTER — Connie Seger, of Fort Loramie, will open a laser engraving business on Main Street in Minster this month, a retirement business she hopes will keep her busy, and, if nothing else, support itself in the next few years.
Seger took up engraving after she learned woodworking seven years ago from her husband and father-in-law, who spent most of their free time in the activity.
“I thought, If I want to spend time with my husband, I have to do this,” she said, adding that she spent a lot of time cutting deers with a band saw.
