Wooden shell at is shop King Boatworks, Putney Vermont

THE AMERICAN CRAFTSMAN refuses to become extinct.
While computer-controlled robots and chinese factories are
Churning our most of the products that feed the great machine
of consumption, along the less traveled backroads and in the
Dustier corners of our economy, the craftsman keeps on older,
Slower, more picturesque kind of work alive.

The American crafstman still thrives, because when it comes to
Getting certain things done will and with beauty, a human hand
Guided by a human eye, ear, and imagination can still
Be the highest technology of all.
