Would You Trade Jobs with This Guy?

Sean Barrows sent me this wonderful video captured and posted by Stuart King, a woodworker and historian from the United Kingdom. It's a visual reminder of days long gone, before electrification, standardization, regulation, and globalization. For centuries, creative folks have figured out the amazing qualities and applications of wood, and how to work it.

This Moroccan street artist makes it look so easy...with his feet and a bow-turned lathe!

If your answer to the post title is "Yes", you need a vacation :-)
