Big Fun in Big T

Last Saturday, I spent the day at the grand opening of Rockler’s new store in San Antonio, Texas. Spending time with woodworkers talking about woodworking is always a good day for me. Talking about a shared interest and looking at all the different ways that people come to the craft of woodworking is fascinating. And to see those folks at a brand-new store filled with woodworking supplies and gizmos of every description…well, “kids in a candy store” is an apt description.

There were two major takeaways from last Saturday for me. First, woodworking is a strong and growing craft. And second, I could not be happier to be a part of it.
