Very well written. It is so true that nowadays its harder and harder to find true crafstmen. I suppose power tools have a place in production environments but there is nothing that replaces the trained eyes and hands of a true crafstman with hand tools for the utmost quality. When I had an addition put on my house, the crew of three carpenters worked exclusively with hammers, no nail guns. They used cutoff saws to speed up the work but the hammering was all done by hand. It was amazing to watch those guys. Two or three blows of the hammer and the nail sank into the wood like it was butter.
