Functional Art?

In any case, there is something to be said about a craft such as this to be passed down.  They are getting a head start at the ages of 7 and 9 years old.  Julian, Maris and Thijme receive 1 Euro for every piece of hand-built pine furniture they paint, and are only allowed to work 3 hours pr week due to the Dutch labor laws.  I love the video of them painting the furniture. Lucas Maassen + Sons is one serious factory.
