Keep Craft Alive Podcast: Ep. 7, Aaron Agosto, Professional Photographer and Finish Carpenter
An eye for detail means this carpenter spends hours perfecting trim details and prioritizing quality over quantity.
In this special series of episodes of the FHB Podcast, Rob Yagid, executive director of Keep Craft Alive and former Fine Homebuilding editor, shares his conversations with some of the most talented and dedicated people in the world of residential design and construction.
In this episode, Rob talks to Aaron Agosto about his introduction to carpentry, why skilled labor is still undervalued, and the importance of business sense when it comes to working in the trades. Aaron talks about how he became successful after dropping out of college, and discusses some of the projects he’s been working on, including a wall of high-end custom cabinets.
Keep Craft Alive is an initiative powered by Fine Homebuilding to bring awareness to the skills gap in the building industry and the rich professional opportunities that exist in the trades.
The SkillsUSA #KeepCraftAlive Scholarship Fund provides tuition money to students pursuing a career in the trades. You can make a tax-deductible donation to the fund, or buy a #KeepCraftAlive T-shirt to both support the fund and show your support.
