Randy Castellini
 
It all started in an 8 X 10 shed during the sixth grade. That’s where owner and manager, Randy Castellini, began woodworking with a band saw, lathe, and numerous hand tools. At the time, it was simply called Randy’s Workshop and the projects were relatively simple. A few years later, Randy’s dad, Raymond, built a 50 X 30 workshop. The collection of power and hand tools grew as did Randy’s skill level. Along with woodworking, Randy and his dad also restored a 1931 Ford Coupe which Randy still owns today.

Randy follows a line of entrepreneurs – his immigrant grandfather owned grocery stores and his uncles and father owned and operated a glass and hardware business. Randy along with his wife, Sistine, have been involved in Tucson real estate for ten years. At first, they started out investing in single family homes which eventually led them to become real estate agents and owning their own real estate brokerage company. Sistine continues to operate the real estate company along with two other excellent agents.

The store has a perfect combination of ingredients that keeps Randy enthusiastic – the large selection of tools and sundries, the classroom which can host an endless variety of classes and demonstrations, and most importantly the customers. Randy has always been customer service oriented and looks forward to helping customers and learning from them.
