Making wooden barrels a full-time job for Ontario man

An Ontario man is making a living making wooden barrels by hand.

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.
