Finding Minnesota: Greek Wood Carver

Machines, computers and robots are now doing work that human hands used to take care of. In some ways, it has made the process more efficient and less expensive. But gone is a bit of the authenticity.

Tucked away, though, in a south Minneapolis backyard is a cramped little wood shop where a Greek immigrant is keeping the old-fashioned craftsmanship alive.

On January 2, 2011, Konstantinos Papadakis was featured on WCCO-TV (CBS Minnesota) in a piece by Mike Binkley called Finding Minnesota: Greek Wood Carver.
