    I have personally watched these artisans at work for that is what they are. The quality of much of their higher end custom work could only be duplicated in developed countries by very expensive precision machinery. Even at that when they add intricate raised designs into the surfaces of the boxes brings their craft to a whole new level
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    I love watching these guys work. I like how he uses his big toe as a third hand.

    That’s a very interesting video. I see now why so many craftsmen in the East squat on the ground, very efficient using your foot to hold. Such thin gauge sheet, though ! Looks very good, but can’t see it surviving long. I don’t like those belly pinching tin snips, but I like the little holder he’s got fo it. and the modified rail track.
