Visiting a job-site today and seeing all the trades slide around each other trying to bring the project to life reminded me of this little gem. The episode The Spirit of Woodcraft from the 2006-2007 season the The Wood Wright Shop on PBS is a staple I share with first year architecture students. Its primary focus is on how a carpenter interacts with the craft, tools, and material, it is really a wonderful monologue about flow, patience, observation, and attention. It is also exquisitely nerdy (starting with a quote from Starwars).
