Where to look if I want to learn about how things are made? Things include everything from clothes, building, books, scissors, shoes, mirror etc. I want to know how we acutally build these things from raw materials. There is a nice discovery channel show that does tell us about how these things are made in the factory and that is exactly what I want. But I would prefer something in written. Is there any resource available? I would also like to know how these things were made earlier before the emergence of factories. Thank You!
