Since I have never touched a lathe I do not believe that I could do what he did even if I had the most modern lathe in America. Therefore I must say that what I just saw him do is pretty danged remarkable.

In woodworking there is no scrap, only firewood.

I noticed the woodworking items around him; I would like to possess just a small portion of his talent!!

And they say skew chisel is difficult!

I have seen pictures of this in Holtztapffel but did not believe anyone was could still do it.

BTW never mind his foot, it's his *back* I would kill for...

I'm always amazed what people can do , it's not the price of the tool it's what you can do with what you have..

Thanks a lot! I showed the spouse. I am not allowed to get a bigger lathe now until I can learn how to do that! ROFL.

It's amazing what one can do when there's no one around to say it can't or shouldn't be done
