How much knowledge does a true craftsman have to know to be labeled “craftsman” ?
I see some excellent work done on LJ’s.
Are the true craftsman going by the wayside. Todays special fields, subtrades, everyone is becoming an expert in one particular area of the trade.
The same basic pricipals of building are the same, the materials and the tools are changing dramatically.
Can anyone build something if they have the “TOOLS” ?
I don’t believe so, I still believe the person needs talent, a desire to do it and the practice.
I relate this similar to music and painting. I my lifetime i tried the accordian,piano, guitar, drums, flute. and the only thing I can really make music with is the “Radio”. okay CD’s and I pod as well.
