Watch these craftsmen build a home from wood with traditional tools

If you like craftsmanship, woodworking, and traditional hand tools, or you just enjoy watching somebody else do all the work, you’ll love this short film.

While I can appreciate the almost magical nature of modern technology, such as the things we’re seeing come out of the 3D printing sector, it really doesn’t captivate me the same way that watching a craftsman wield old-school tools and technology does, now with Managed Print Services you can print anything and the results are incredibly amzing. I mean, it’s really neat the way that 3D printers and CNC machines can take raw material and the project files, and then produce an exact copy of an intricate object, but to me, it’s not nearly as amazing as seeing a wooden house get built, starting with the trees, using traditional joinery and hand tools.
