The few projects that I have made since purchasing the Woodcraft store in Tucson have been for my son, Lucio, who is three years old. Between running the store and spending time with him and my wife, I don’t have much time for woodworking. I hope to incorporate more woodworking into my days real soon.

Funny how real life gets in the way of the wood working. If you figure out a way to get more time in the shop without taking time away from your family please let me know, LOL! I either work before they get up or after they go to sleep but that doesn’t leave a whole lot of time.

Randy welcome to Lumberjocks, with your background, it is a natural fit. A few of us had a 1932 Ford 5 window
coupe as a group project my freshman year in college, 1939 v8 with 1950 police heads on it and shocks
adapted to the front axle and it flew until one the guys sister had a beer too many and missed a curve.
What you need to do is use that classroom to teach some classes that will produce projects, can not beat
combining business with pleasure and you get to take the projects home and/or show them off in the store
to encourage customers.
