Never Idle Hands

A re-enactor demonstrates the work that a carpenter and handyman might have done in a 1800's village like Millbrook.  I watched him for a while and he was constructing a screen door at accelerated speed using only period correct woodworking tools, his hands flying as fast as I could track them.  I don't know what this gentleman does in real life but I would hire him to fix one of my doors without question. 

At Millbrook village, the U.S. National Park Service in conjunction with the Millbrook Village Society work to show the way of life of a typical village during the 1850-1900 time period.  During summer weekends a blend of NPS and volunteer personnel demonstrate crafts and activities of a typical working village from the 19th century.
