The Ox

This post is a little different, having nothing to do with seeds, gardening, or permaculture.  

THE OX is a portrait of master woodworker Eric Hollenbeck and the alternative high school he has partnered with.  I really enjoyed watching this short film, and would love to see more films like it.

From the Blue Ox Millworks website:

Blue Ox is a fully functioning Victorian job shop which produces custom architectural millwork, as well as interior and exterior details for historic homes and new construction projects around the United States. But it's more than that. Blue Ox is a school, a historic park, and a haven for craftsmen.

Blue Ox is the product of nearly four decades of work from master craftsman Eric Hollenbeck and his wife Viviana. It is a place where craftsmanship techniques of the last century are preserved and quality takes precedence over mass production. It's also a place where community comes together and lives are changed in positive ways.
