Glad to have found you!
I am a former Marine, Scottish (therefor frugal!) and a volunteer at Steppingstone Museum in Havre de Grace, Maryland. I do, when I can, traditional (neanderthal) woodworking. I have power tools but prefer hand tools.
I am on a journey, just begun about 20 years ago. In the range from wood butcher to Master Cabinetmaker, I am a Master Woodbutcher. Can't afford to take 5 or a dozen years to really get good. I try to pass on what I have learned from other woodworkers or learned the hard way.
