Craftsmanship is a skill in a particular craft. It is the skill that someone uses when they make beautiful things with their hands. Craftsmanship is the quality that comes from creating with passion, care, and attention to detail.

Craftsmanship is a quality that is honed, refined, and practiced over the course of a career. There is a difference between a Rolex and a Casio watch, right? Right!

Traditional craftsmanship is perhaps the most tangible manifestation of intangible cultural heritage. This documentary focuses on Peter Korn, a founder and executive director of the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship. It helps you realize the challenges and rewards of crafts.

A furniture maker since 1974, Peter has exhibited his work in galleries and museums across the United States.
