VINE GROVE, Ky.
Already a leather worker, a model builder and a graphic designer and illustrator, Vine Grove resident Chris Lemke threw himself into another craft that thrives on details about four years ago.
Ships in bottles might see a boost in recognition, though. The hobby has been listed in the just published 2014 edition of "Chase's Calendar of Events," a book listing worldwide holidays, historic anniversaries and similar events.
Oct. 4, 2014 will be the first National Ships-in-Bottles Day.
The hobby is one that blends craftsmanship and history and demands patience and precision.
