Recreational realization.

Ever been to the gym? Good – now – replace that treadmill with a band-saw, the dumbbell with a hammer and the twenty-something gym instructor with a rugged sixty-something in plaid.

It’s a workshop club and your membership card give access to equipment too damn expensive to own and way too big to have anywhere to put.

The retired artisan-turned-instructor get to teach skills acquired through a lifetime. The craft gets to live for another day. And you get to turn your ideas into physical reality. For fun, profit and recreation.
