Impressive, indeed. I really enjoy his philosophy on the beauty of the grain as well.

Talk about taking woodturning to the next level, Wow. I hoping that he would show how he hollowed these big boys, maybe we will have to just stay tuned in.

Interesting turning indeed. Also check out Nick Turner’s video on large turning. It can be found at go to videos under Miscellaneous and click on Nick Turner. I was impressed as well when I saw this one.

Now that is a lathe. I can’t say that I have ever seen a chain saw used as a turning tool before. The work is impressive. The drying process and teh finish he gets is really amazing. Very, very cool.

Wow! I can hear Crocodile Dundee saying…. “That’s not a lathe….” then seeing Vigil’s lathe… “Now that a lathe!”

Thank you for sharing Wayne. The round vessel of walnut I thought was amazing!

Favorite for sure!
