Storyline

The umbrella is a fashion accessory that originated in ancient China almost 1700 years ago. The fabrication of the meticulously crafted collapsible handmade umbrella begins with the processing of a birch wood shaft. Next, the single-cylinder to eight-cylinder outboard marine motors that run on gas, diesel, or electricity, consist of an engine that is on the top, a gear case below, and a middle section that is in between. As the show continues, we follow the steps in the making of cutlery. The production process begins with the stamping of a thin sheet of metal that makes the basic shape of a fork or a spoon. In the end, the making of the retractable tape measure begins with a three-dimensional computer design, and then, a special machine covers hardened strips of steel with primer and paints them.
