Alex Stewart: Cooper – FineWoodworking

The audio on this video is less than stellar, but trust me on this one: It’s worth leaning in and watching this incredible video of 83-year old cooper Alex Stewart. This video was produced in 1973, so if I’m doing my math correctly Alex was born before the turn of the 20th century and started making wooden churns, buckets, barrels, and bowls before the Titanic set sail.
