Wonderful work...I am totally in awe of their craftsmanship.  An excellent example of 'upcycling'.

Hmm...  All homesteaders are DIYers, right?

But I was impressed.  If I were to take on a project like this, I'd be working with three times as many different tools as these guys, and even then I believe I'd progress no faster (and probably slower).  And that's just looking at it in terms of the pace of an individual.  Because the real advantage these guys have is that they can each specialize in doing a particular thing or particular things - and yet work cooperatively.  So it's a sort of assembly-line system.

This is what I see to be lacking in many communities of homesteaders in North America: the commitment to working in a coordinated, cooperative way for any more than a day or two now and again.

Thanks for posting the vid Duane.  These guys are admirable.
