Are Sneakers Unsustainable? When You See How They’re Made, You’ll Wonder Why They Don’t Cost $2,000

It’s not often that I feel guilty after watching a manufacturing video, but this one did it to me.

I go through a pair of sneakers in under a year, and after seeing the absurd amount of labor, processes, machines, energy and materials that go into each, I can’t believe that a) they wear out within eight months and b) they don’t cost me $ 2,000 per pair. Watch how your average run-of-the-mill running kicks are made:

Good gosh. Fabric, leather, plastic, resin, rubber, foam, reflective material, adhesives; CNC sewing machines, manual sewing machines, hydraulic presses, stamps, glue-spraying nozzles, embroidery machines, heating machines, and all that handwork. And I will break them at the seams or wear the soles out in less than 250 days by doing nothing more strenuous than daily walking. I think I ought to start searching for a more sustainable form of footwear, or find a way to comprehensively recycle them.

Ford’s Super-Strong, Lightweight Shelf Made From Honeycomb-Structured Paper

For their new EcoSport model, the designers of Ford have incorporated an adjustable rear cargo shelf that weighs just six pounds, yet can hold nearly 700. The combination of sturdiness and light weight is a result of it being made from a paper honeycomb structure, similar to what Ikea uses inside their Lack tables (see link below).

Here’s what it can do:

Although it’s not clear from the video, the shelf slides into brackets of differing heights. It can also be stored on the back of the seats.

DIY Industrial Lamps; Ben Completes his Wood-Fired Hot Tub; See How YouTube Maker Videos are Made and More

Industrial Lamps

Wow this is a cool one. Laura Kampf takes some old gas canister caps and steel bar stock, then transforms them into lamps with an accordion extending mechanism:

DIY Wood Fired Hot Tub

Wow again! Ben Uyeda rings up a DIY wood-fired hot tub with stuff from the big box store:

Burying A Compressed Air Line

We’ve seen April Wilkerson work on objects, walls, floors, ceilings and staircases, and here she tackles the ground. Goal: Bury a compressed air line to connect her compressor to her husband’s shop 30 feet across the yard. As always, she makes it look easy:

Using a Furnace Fan for Shop Ventilation

Here the Samurai Carpenter shows you an inexpensive (assuming you’re, er, tossing an oil furnace) way to get powerful shop ventilation:

Things Learned from First Homemade Bandsaw

If you don’t have a head for engineering–look away! Here Matthias Wandel takes an exhaustive look at his very first bandsaw build, explaining errors he made during the building process, identifying design flaws and showing how he corrected them in subsequent iterations:

Big Bandsaw Build, Part 6

Speaking of bandsaws, here Wandel finishes up the build of his large bandsaw, hacking up a blade enclosure from an old printer and adding a dizzying amount of final cladding:

Rolling Planer Stand

John Heisz builds a rolling stand to hold his planer. Part of the fun of watching Heisz’s videos is all of the homemade contraptions and tools he uses; watch out for his bar clamps, tilting outfeed thingamajig and his box joint jig:

“How I Make My Videos, From Project Design to Upload”

This is a long video, but an informative one for those of you seeking to join the ranks of YouTube makers. Here Steve Ramsey details all of the stuff that goes on behind the scenes and shows you what it takes, from a time perspective, to produce weekly build videos:
