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.
