I love metal working. Absolutely love it but I'll tell you I have a crazy admiration for carpenters. Especially the guys who do the super precise work. Not the guys who just built something in the quickest way but the guys Making perfect angles ,miters , peg and hole joints ect. Absolutely amazing to me. This guy's video is a prime example
But what about y'all ? What's a trade y'all admire ?

Yep. Im by NO means a metalworker but ive played with welding off and on for several years and you can often undo mistakes. My biggest fear in doing carpentry on a house is getting things square or even. I have seen plenty of amateur work and it will affect a resale of a home.
Wolfson, have you ever watched an episode of "The Woodwright's Shop"? Roy Underhill is a fine craftsman and does everything with antique tools. I have used a lot of techniques from his show to build things with modern powertools.
Utility pipe installers. Water mains, sewer mains and storm drain. Ive been working this trade for 13 years now but Ive been around it since I was a kid. My father and uncle run their own businesses. These guys that do this line of work are tough, especially the laborers. It is not for the weak or lazy. Ive seen many guys come and go that couldn’t hack it. Sadly it is rare to find younger guys that want to do this kind of work anymore. Im the youngest one on our crew at 32 and we can never find any younger help. This pic is a big underground retention pond we did up in Atlanta.
Plumbers are by far the best of the best and should be admired by all. Plumbers tend to be the best looking tradespeople. Honest, hardworking and talented beyond reproach. I could never fault a beautiful bride for deciding to marry a plumber!
I've posted this before and wish I had more pics of my work. It's what I used to do for a living. I agree with just about everything mentioned above. I appreciate anyone who does their job well no matter what the job is.
