Found a great “How it’s Made” video showing some ornate inlay boxes (second item showcased in the episode):

These guys sure crank them out… it would take me months to make something like that.

Not a bad video and your right they do crank them out.
It was interesting to see just how they do do it.

Very Nice Boxes. Anyone know what kind of glue they’re using? Some kind of cold press glue? Very interesting.

Doug: It definitely didn’t ask me for any credit card info. Not sure what’s happening on your end.

Matt: I wish I knew exactly what glue… it seems to work really well for veneering. Maybe hide glue?

It just took me straight to the video. No sign up required. Maybe try it a few times to see if it only asks at random or something. And are you guys picking Standard or HD quality? I just hit play and it loads the video and the play button turns green, then hit play again to watch. Worked fine. And yeah Bob, the glue did seem to work very well and I was expecting vacuum pressing but there wasn’t any to my surprise.

I had to try about three times, but it finally took me to the video.

Very interesting. I always wondered how boxes like that were turned out in relatively large numbers. This gives a really good insight into the equipment and techniques used for semi-mass production.

I found it very interesting as well.

I watched all of the segments, that kind of TV would make me turn mine on more often…

When I moved into my house, I opted to get rid of cable tv altogether. Most anything I want to watch I can find online, and get spared from the majority of commercials. I do miss seeing How It’s Made though… it’s kind of difficult to locate, and they don’t sell any dvds of it. The engineer in me loves seeing the assembly of random trinkets.

I would like to see this but which page is the video on? I went through 6 pages of videos there and did not see this one.

I can’t get to it either. It wants me to sign up. I won’t do that just for a video.

Jim, It should just immediately show the video on the linked page. If it does something fishy, like asking you to log in or showing other stuff, try the link again or refresh a few times. Didn’t know this video site was so problematic. I’ve clicked on the link several times after posting to check it, and every time it brings me right to the video (the black area with the red circle in the middle with the triangle symbol for “play”).
