Northern guild of master craftsmen at work.

It is always a pleasure to watch people who are masters of what they do.

The following video was produced by Northmen: the Guild of Northern Master Craftsmen in Latvia, which is dedicated to traditional hand craftsmanship.

There are 34 Northmen videos in all available from Vimeo.   Videos also can be found on the Northmen web site.  This YouTube version has a couple of extra minutes of footage not included in the Vimeo versions.

I respect people who are keep these old skills alive, and maybe someday we’ll all depend on them, but for now I’m glad that I can live without hard hand labor myself.
