Another year, another accompanying swarm of soothing process videos provided by the Internet to help us swallow the insanity that was 2018—and at Core77, one of our greatest pastimes is stockpiling the most satisfying of these videos we can find. This year, despite a very unfortunate Instagram hacking on our @core77 account that deleted all of our past videos (sad, we know), we set out to once again deliver on our promise to find the best of #processporn to share with our friends on Instagram. It's that time of year again to pick the best and the brightest of what we discovered. So take a moment to yourself and enjoy some of this design magic:
This ceramic stamper was a huge hit on our account this year for obvious reasons (original source unknown, but found via World of Engineering)
This string trick lands a little more in the realm of life hack than design #processporn, but hoo-boy, did our Instagram friends find it satisfying (via Reddit).
I could just watch this lathe make ball after ball until that thing can lathe no more.
Watching this gabion basket weaving video is pretty much a hypnosis tool for designers (video by ssmesh9 on YouTube).
Watching thermoforming will never get old to us—and this video of thermoformed luggage is by no means an exception!
This video by @measuredworkshop is maker eye candy—not only do you get a video demonstrating how to do a flush curve in plywood, but it's also expertly documented.
Ever wondered what it takes to make one of those holiday cookie cutters? Well, I have good news for you: now you no longer have to and it's mesmerizing (via @otbp_cookiecutters).
While many of you agreed that this process is a little too tedious for tile-making, many simultaneously found it very hard to argue that watching it isn't satisfying AF.
The sound and visuals of this ceramic scraping process by @abe_haruya make this video ASMR perfection.
If you are not already following pastry chef Amaury Gichon on Instagram, do yourself a favor and follow now—this video of him making a chocolate gramophone (Yes, a GRAMOPHONE) is an excellent demonstration of his unfathomable construction skills.
The process of fiberglass molding is pretty dated, and yes, not very sustainable or safe...but there's something about watching a fibrous sheet turn into a finished chair that is oh-so-fascinating.
And finally, some culinary #processporn that's an excellent life hack for anyone who's a fanatic for noodles.
If you haven't already, go ahead and follow our Instagram and wait for the never-ending supply of satisfying #processporn to come your way.
