English Video Discussion - Craftsmanship

This video is unique to the site because it has no words, but it "says" a lot. It shows a man crafting an amazing piece of woodwork from beginning to end using traditions and tools taught by his father. I believe that this is filmed in Canada.

Pre -Discussion:

  1. What are some typical crafts made my people in your region/country?
  2. Do you prefer local crafts over store bought items?
  3. Would you pay more for a locally made item than something imported? Why or why not?
