The Moulthrop Family of Woodturners

I thought we’d look into the life of the Moulthrop family today as I watched this wonderful documentary last night run by PBS titled Craft in America which was deeply inspiring. The Craft in America series has been running for quite a while, but as a European citizen we don’t really hear too much about these sorts of shows, but luckily for us we’re able to watch them all on the PBS website.
