  1. My son comes to me and says Dad cows are bad for the planet, they fart the gas traps heat in the ozone.
    I said no son cows have been here for 1000's of years Mankind is distroying the planet,
    If we all moved back to basic life put away our cars and stop using gas or burning stuff the planet will heal on its own.
    Or god will take care of the problem for us.

  2. Thanks for sharing great tour love the history and the beautiful furniture that came out of these shops many years ago true craftsmanship.

  3. Fantastic! That water-powered table saw is a wonderful piece of Shaker ingenuity. Excellent period woodworking benches. I'd love to tour an old shop like this.

  4. Gret video tour with a bunch of interesting trivia!

    Wondering if you got any better shots of those chairs facing out of the barn (?) in the final shot of the video? They look like a really nice alternative to the Adirondack chair (or Muskoka chair here in Canada)..? Might be a cool video for you to do, or at the very least I'd like to get a better look at them and figure out the pattern to make my own version that stands out in a sea of similar looking Adirondack chairs.

  5. Is there a link to find out more about the life and work of George Wickersham mentioned in the video? Thanks and really enjoy your videos.

  6. I love history. I find many skills have not been passed down through out the ages … These places help keep not just our heritage but some of the many skills we still need today. Many wood workers would not know what to do if the power were to shut off. Thank you for keeping these skills alive.
