96 Years Previous and Nonetheless Woodworking. Meet my Grandpa! | Store Tour

Share it with your friends Like

Meet my 96-year-old grandfather! Day by day he heads out into his small storage store and makes crosses, birdhouses, wooden toys, foot stools and no matter else evokes him within the second. Up to now he is revamped 11,000 pocket crosses which were distributed everywhere in the world by his church, family and friends. He’s my single biggest supply of inspiration and is the kindest, warmest particular person you’ll ever meet. He has helped me respect life and resides proof that so long as you’ve gotten a function and surrounded by family members you can see happiness.

One of many many issues I really like about Grandpa Picciuto is there’s an open invitation each Sunday morning in his tiny kitchen the place family and friends collect to drink “Espresso Royals” which is a tasty mix of black espresso and whiskey!

I hope everybody who watches my movies finds their supply of inspiration and finds their function. My aim right here on this channel is to encourage others to be artistic. Even in case you don’t have the identical instruments or the identical hobbies as me, I hope my movies spark that concept you’ve been in search of.

Thanks for watching and thanks for serving to me dwell my dream. It doesn’t matter what nation you reside in, race, gender, sexual orientation, class, we’re all MAKERS and all on this collectively. Love and respect!

Thank you very much for sharing your grandfather with us. He is truly an inspiration! Watching the video reminded me of my grandfathers shop. He was a welder for the military and was one of the first men on his base to weld aluminum. We lost him when I just got out of college and before I got into making things. I I truly miss not being able to learn from him with regards to his skills and experience. You have been given a gift to be able to know him at his age. Please thank him for his service to our country and his selfless work to bring inspiration to others.

Erik Hinkston says:

Inspiring to all who make, thank you for making this video. I was only 3 when my woodworking grandfather passed, how I wish there was something of his left behind for me to use. I only have a couple pieces of furniture he built, all the tools were given away. I love hearing from makers about their heritage and the mentors that inspired and taught them. I imagine this is how my grandad would be if I’d had the chance.
