Wood Worker: Paul Sellers. I could watch Paul Sellers on YouTube all day long with a hand chisel doing jointery. That guy is a legend with hand tools.

The true master of his craft anything from wood , metal, stone etc. The other is a well oiled crew that can work flawless and fast is amazing to watch. Last weekend on Sunday afternoon and Monday i got to see a guy and 1 helper stucco the new house next to my moms. The young kid never missed a step and the guy doing the stucco was interesting to watch, 2 half day and the 2800 sq ft house was done.

Maybe not a "trade" per se, but the guys I admire are the old style fix and repair guys.
You hit a tree with your farm equipment we fix that.
Your vehicle frame rusty we fix that
your dump truck tip over we straighten that.
Grind, cut, shear, bend, weld, whatever it takes, as they Never ever see the same repair twice so everything is a one up, as we go figure it out make it work.

Our son in law owns a mechanical contracting business with roughly 60-65 employees. It is amazing to me to see how talented the skilled trades persons are and many are very skllled in multiple trade areas.

Prost......... er I meant fine carpentry. Its more an art than a trade. I have no idea how they work so precise with a material ( real tree wood ) that changes its dimensions by the phases of the moon, humidity and is gust generally bent out of shape for no reason.

I work in oilfield construction and I really like watching rig moves where they've got a couple tandem tri bed trucks working. I don't necessarily figure that truck driving is a trade or a art of any kind but watching those big sows in action is something to see. Much like a ballet but with man stuff.

My grandfather was a jeweler and also a clocksmith. Watched him work on everything from rolexes to Giant grandfather clocks in some very wealthy homes. Anyone that can deal with the tedious tiny parts it takes to make clocks an watches work is very talented. And PATIENT

I'm partial to tool and die makers.

We can make and or fix anything but a glass eye or a broken heart.

FYI a few of us are getting close the the glass eye...

Yall ever seen a crop sprayer weaving and bobbing through sets of power lines and tall trees next to the field he is treating? It's hard for me not to admire those guys skill and the obvious grit down in their craw

I respect all workers! Every trade to me are like cogs on a gear. Even trades that produce things for leisure activity. Over 20 years as a Master auto truck tech, Utility tree work in a bucket truck 2 years, 16+ years in golf course industry and now operator of a large fence post mill, wood treating plant, landscape mulch operation. Worked with many skilled trades over the years. Such a joy to work with Tradesman that take pride in their work! The guys that take pride in their work, know their worth, cost more, and are always worth it!


your only allowed so many sunrises... I aim to see every one of them!

Not a trade, but I admire Matt Jones. I guess you could say I admire his way of life.
