To be a cooper you need to be stubborn. Some woodworking skills are important, but stubbornness and maturity are probably more helpful. This work really comes down to a mix of that, then patience, patience, and more patience. Often you have to step away and come back; give things time. I think I’ve always been incredibly patient…As long as I’m not driving.
