I lived in Churchton, north of Deale Maryland for a while. Have you ever been to Calvert Cliffs to hunt for sharks teeth? I went once and didn’t find a thing. The Chesapeake Bay is getting ruined by runoff and people. I grew up on the York River in Virginia. My dad built boats. The woodworking thing is fun. I’m like you. I’ve only made some nice things within the last year. I’ve made tons of wood things, but I used drills, screws, countersinks, and plugs. And, most were pine. I’m focusing on learning this year to make furniture.

Thanks for the note. I’m north of Annapolis, getting my wood from Exotic Lumber just west of the Bay Bridge. We’ve been here for 14 years, using BWI as the jumping-off point in my travelling days.
As a comment, I found the biggest change for me was getting precision layout tools (Incra, Woodpeckers, Mitutoyo calipers), and religiously working their details; also, forcing myself to learn Sketchup, to get the measurements worked-out ahead of time. One huge result was to slow-down, and get it right.
