From Timber To Tide – Portrait eines Bootsbauers

Bootsbauer Ben Harris hat in seinem Leben kaum anderes gemacht, als Holz zu verarbeiten. Am ende eines langen Arbeitsprozesses des gelernten Tischlers und Bootsbauers steht ein Boot, eine Yacht genauer gesagt. Komplett in Handarbeit erstellt.

Das Portrait von ihm, seiner Arbeit und seiner Passion ist ebenso schön gedreht, wie auch inspirierend. Einer dieser Momente, in denen ich wünschte, auch einen Job zu machen, der etwas mehr Handwerk inne hat.

Ben has always loved wood. His mother said that his first word was ‘log’. He has been working with wood throughout the UK since the age of 15. First as an assistant to a cabinet maker, where he started by sharpening the tools and clearing up. He then developed his skills in furniture making and his passion for wood and forestry by working in broadleaf woodlands. Later he tuned his skills in bespoke oak-framed carpentry and went on to establish a sawmill and oak framing business in Scotland, sourcing timber from the local estates. In 2005 Ben moved to Cornwall to study boatbuilding. He has been building boats and sailing them ever since.
