Chen Hesheng, 69, is a local Nanjing resident whose predecessors have lived there for 300 years. After his retirement, he picked up carpentry.
Every morning the first place he goes to is his workshop. At first he made some small wooden spoons and scoops, and then created miniature wooden farm tools and utensils. Later, Chen turned his focus to fast disappearing professions. He said that he wants to preserve the old memories as many old professions are disappearing.
