I love the expression on his face when he is roughing the piece to a cylinder.

This is especially funny to me because I’m not too experienced at turning. My current goal is to make about 10 Shaker pegs. So, this morning I was at the lathe with a 1” x 1” x 4” block spinning. I was wearing a full face shield. Then I came into the house and saw this guy.

Hey Mark Wilson, I think this buy might be related to you!
Is that a piece of railroad track he’s using for a tool rest?

Looks like he’s initially roughing it out with a crowbar! That is one crazy turning.
