Pete Bradford had always dreamed of running a cooperage.
He got his chance to pursue his dream when he lost his job seven years ago.
"This is just something that I always wanted to do and I always knew I was going to do it one day," Bradford told CBC News in a recent interview.
He produces one barrel every day and is believed to be one of only two people in Canada working as a full-time cooper.
