turning redwood logs on a lathe

05-28-2015 12:13 AM by BigD1 | 3 comments »

I need a memory boost. I watched a video of a gentleman from Ireland, who turns Redwood Logs on a wood lathe, that uses a chain saw mounted in a bracket, with saw running full R.P.M’s and he turns the logs by hand. His lathe is massive and is mounted in a concrete block. He turns the logs into chairs, and also turns wooden sculpture’s of abstract design. I believe the demo of turning logs was still photo. He then demo’s how to turn a lidded box on a shop lathe, to a class of students. Does anyone know the gentleman’s name, or where I can once again watch the video. Thanks for helping…..bigd 1
