Wow Steve, your projects are always good for the heart. Loved the arm twist, it may be easy for you, but there are some of us that are not that limber! Looking forward to your next offering!

Hey, Steven, you know I’m 60 so my eyes and my mind don’t quite work as fast as they use to but the first thing that came into my mind when I saw your hand turning around like that was that maybe you could figure out how to build up the rotational speed of your hand and then once you’ve got that down pat then you could braze some carbide teeth onto your finger nails and you’d have your own built in saw. :-| Hey, how is it that I spent 8 hours today working on my dovetailing technique only to prove just how bad my eye sight has really become and you spend only five minutes working on a project that entertains people? – and, BTW, it was entertaining. I’ll probably have to go back and watch it a few more times to figure out your hand and arm movement – you know how old people get – but even if you don’t get the rotational speed fast enough what could you do with maybe a scrub brush or something else in your hand? :) That’s was a great video, Steven; you oughta go into show business. I enjoyed it.

You’re a NUT Steve! Another great video. Thanks for sharing. It’s good to know even you have to do multiple takes sometimes. :P

Hey, great video, keep up the good work. Your videos are entertaining and informative. What else could we ask for? Maybe some celebrity cameos or something but otherwise, just what I like in a good video!
