in about 3 1/2 minutes...
Take a look at this guitar from the 1830s.
See how he started from a plank of walnut to create custom-sized wood binding strips.

Thanks, pretty cool. 

Didn't have time to watch the other 237 trade secrets.

Oh come on, Roger.
You could probably work through them all in less than a month if you locked yourself in the basement and told your friends and family you were on safari in Elbonia.

Coincidentally, I just viewed that one tonight also.  I'm a subscriber to the trade secrets.  Lots of good tips, techniques, and info.  I have downloaded many that I didn't get automatically from before I subscribed a couple of years ago.  I now have all of them back to 2010.  Still, I probably only have about half of the 237.  I reference them quite often when working on guitars.  Highly recommended.

Became a Shooting Star when I got my 1st guitar.
Back in '66, I was 13 and that was my fix.
Still shooting for stardom after all this time.
If I never make it, I'll still be fine.

I did a similar process for the Koa binding on my maple parlor build although Dan's process was a bit more refined with cooler tools.

+1 I do the same. I had seen this and was also impressed that the guitar had a bolt on neck in 1837.
