Let me invite you to the next meeting of the St Pete Woodcrafter’s Guild, next tuesday evening. We have a very diverse group of woodworkers and I am sure you could find some help there. I understand there are some good groups in Tampa as well. Having someone to turn to for help is a great resource. is the link to our website.
