Hey Lumberjocks,

Found this cool video, really well made and I love the way the guy speaks about his craft. Some very nice older machines in here too. Thought some may appreciate it.

Kaleb,
That was inspirational to say the least.
Now, let me go to the shower. :)

Kaleb, that was a very good video. he is a man after my own heart. I think there is always a place for kids, they just need to be shown what is out there besides all this new electronic gadgetry that wastes their time.

There is nothing like… no better feeling… than making something of your own design.

That is what makes this Lumberjocks site so special. You get ideas form 33,000 people and you can design something similar you own way.

Thank you so much for the video. I’d like to meet that guy some day!!

Badass. Definitely not what I was expecting. Very touching and paints a clear picture of the craft and the powers it holds. Thanks for the share!

Excellent. His comments about having been frontline at Vietnam reminded my of my dad. He still sees it right in front of him. My dad did too, though he rarely mentioned it.

Glad you guys all liked it. As a wannabe woodworker and a high school teacher, who teaches the fringe society group of students, I thought his comments were great. “They are doers not sitters” very apt in my opinion

“Very inspiring video for woodworkers” not only for woodworkers but all skilled trades and for those people who work with problem kids. I can see something like this here where I live, or anyplace for that matter. We have many and I mean lots of kids that could use this type of program here, something that they will actually work towards and give them selfesteam. I was/am a vocational high school student when I realized that I could not make it in regular high school I decided on vocational high school and it was good for me. Our vocational high school today cannot even cope with some of these kids just because it is too ridige and structered I can see many kids, both boys and girls, doing something like this to better themselves.
