96 Years Old and Still Woodworking. Meet my Grandpa! | Shop Tour

Meet my 96-year-old grandfather! Every day he heads out into his small garage shop and makes crosses, birdhouses, wood toys, foot stools and whatever else inspires him in the moment. To date he’s made over 11,000 pocket crosses that have been distributed all over the world by his church, friends and family. He is my single greatest source of inspiration and is the kindest, warmest person you’ll ever meet. He has helped me appreciate life and is living proof that as long as you have a purpose and surrounded by loved ones you will find happiness.

One of the many things I love about Grandpa Picciuto is there’s an open invitation every Sunday morning in his tiny kitchen where friends and family gather to drink “Coffee Royals” which is a tasty blend of black coffee and whiskey!

I hope everyone who watches my videos finds their source of inspiration and finds their purpose. My goal here on this channel is to inspire others to be creative. Even if you don’t have the same tools or the same hobbies as me, I hope my videos spark that idea you’ve been looking for.

Thank you for watching and thank you for helping me live my dream. No matter what country you live in, race, gender, sexual orientation, class, we are all MAKERS and all in this together. Love and respect!
