A Craftsman Searches for a Student

I’ve opined about this before but it’s a topic I feel very strongly about.

Traditional skills and the people who learned them over thousands of hours of effort and sweat and untold failures must not be allowed to fade away. I’m a huge technologist and love where we are headed in terms of that bleeding edge of advances in tech, but at the same time I have hallowed respect for old craftsmen and women who can create something useful from scratch.

This article was fascinating yet sad for me.

    I agree! I think part of the problem is that many people don’t have the resources at their finger tips. I’m luck I have access to a lot of power tools that allow me to work on a woodworking craft. Also, trial and error has been a huge element as I learn and you need patience for that, which many people lack these days.
