Show earlier this afternoon showed how they're made, right from
making the door skins from tree trunks, right on to the end. A little
different than I'd thought. Neat.
The skins are 3 pieces, each, 1-200th of an inch, glued together to
make a three ply skin, one on each side. Of course it all goes quite
fast, they use heat or microwaves to almost instantly cure the glue.
And the sanding, staining, and varnishing, of each outer side takes 70
seconds. Even so, it's kinda amazing that some of those machines could
be vastly simplified and used in a home shop. But regardless it's neet
to see stuff like that being made. I always get some ideas and
inspiration. Good show, if you've never seen it, you shoud if you can.
