Found an article on the Star Tribune web site.
Very interesting what Virgil can do with logs!

Edina, Minnesota artist Virgil Leih uses a chainsaw and a very large lathe capable of turning 2,000 pound logs.

Very interesting reading about Viirgil and his 1917 Oliver 8,000 lb. lathe. I also checked out his 10 min video.
