“I dedicate this project to my father Landis Wilson Myers, a true craftsman himself. He was a wood worker, home builder, metal worker, guitar player, printing pressman, baseball player, self-made business man, and a “fixer” of almost anything. My father loved working with his hands and would have felt a very deep connection to this project.”
~Tadd Landis Myers
THE AMERICAN CRAFTSMAN refuses to become extinct. While computer-controlled robots and Chinese factories are churning out most of the products that feed the great machine of consumption, along the less traveled backroads and in the dustier corners of our economy, the craftsman keeps an older, slower, more picturesque kind of work alive. The American craftsman still thrives, because when it comes to getting certain things done well and with beauty, a human hand guided by a human eye, ear, and imagination can still be the highest technology of all.
