I like to push the envelope with my turnings, sometimes. This time, I may have gone overboard. This was the most challenging turning I’ve ever done. I would love to hear your feedback (except if you think I’m crazy) after you’ve watched this video. Thanks in advance!

Oh you’re crazy alright! Crazy good!

That’s one helluva challenging project. I think, though, you may want to consider putting a remote kill switch somewhere near the tailstock of your lathe. Watching you constantly reaching across that spinning chunk of timber to hit the power off switch on the headstock was cringe inducing. For safety’s sake, give yourself an option to bring the machine to a halt in the event of an emergency.

Thanks, Ripper! This lathe does have a remote stop switch and it is located near the tailstock. It’s just that I guess I’m old school and seldom think about using it! :)

That was terrifying to watch. Cool end result though.
