As a tile and marble contractor for over 30 years, I love to watch the other experts do their work. We make it look easy, but it takes years to get the moves down. Anyone can do what we do if they take their time, and are patient in getting it right. Your video was well done and to the point, and naturally having the right tools makes the difference.
You make a very good point. I can do a lot of things. The problem is that I can't do them nearly as well, or as efficiently as someone with the skills developed over time. Example, when I decide to tile my bathroom, I could do it myself and the job would turn out 'ok'. OTOH, I'd rather hire a professional to do it as it will be done well and not takes months to get done.
It really is a pleasure watching someone work who is good at their craft. As Jiffy says, they make it look so easy.
