Yeah, people would come in the shop continually to see Roy and just soak up the ambiance. Unfortunately, many were not as considerate as you about butting into Roy’s time (and ours’). Roy was a gentleman, though, and gave anyone who asked a few minutes of his time. Some of the visitors would do some goofy stuff – like one asked to pose with me by my bench and project – like I was some historical actor at Colonial Williamsburg. I got a few laughs out of it. One person asked if he could sit at a bench and try a dovetail. He was politely told “no” – but it was funny to watch. He must have thought is was just a “come as you are” shop day!
