Spend 6 minutes with one of my favorite present-day Americans Scott Wadsworth as he answers the mail he gets about his Youtube Channel, Essential Craftsman. Might seem boring going in but you’ll feel differently by the end. With his faith, his skill, and his down-to-earth kindness and competence, Wadsworth is an example of the best this nation has to offer. Still. He’s one of those people that does work that inspires me to stop, turn around, and start putting much more material about Ye Olde Decent America into Ye Olde American Digest.
“Scott started working in 1974. His career as a craftsman has encompassed logging, saw milling, guiding elk hunters, production framing, commercial concrete, steel fabrication, blacksmithing and every aspect of residential carpentry and contracting. Scott has been married to his high school sweetheart Kelly Comerford for 39 years. They have four children and ten grandchildren.
