Men make furniture by hand out in the open along a main street in Al Rashid, Baghdad.
True craftsmen at work make furniture the way they have for generations. The furniture; head boards, end tables, couches and elaborate mirrors are all crafted by hand. Stands of wood are cut and bent into the desired shape and nailed into place. Each piece is then finished with stain and sold at the market.
(These men were futured in a NPR story back in February which had a brief clip from me.)
