For those of us who think you need to spend lots of money for a good lathe to get good results, check this out. It is very impressive.

I don’t have anywhere close to that kind of skill using just my hands. Heck, with my gut, I couldn’t even bend over enough to do that much less be able to use my foot that way. Equally impressive, the guy only uses one chisel.

Very impressive. I would have never thought you could turn wood like that.

That guy is amazing! I couldn’t create that with a fancy lathe and a pile of chisels. He is not only very talented, but he has talented feet.

He made a good looking imbedded ring with a skew. I do embedded rings – but with a special tool designed to make embedded rings. I have never made one with a skew and I don’t think I could if I wanted to. This guy is impressive.

Rich,

When you’re poor in a country full of the poor, you use the talent you have. He is amazing, but the most amazing thing is he used a skew. One of the most versitile tools in a turner’s arsenal, but to me it’s the hardest to master. Besides, I’d never be able to hold anything with my feet even if I could bend that way. Heck, I can’t even see them! Thanks for posting.

I’m not a turner, but if you guys say it is more impressive than I thought, I will take your word for it ;-)) That skew may be the only tool he has.

I’d try it but I need to get rid of my bunions first.

Who do you think would have sexier feet for trying this on TV – Thomas McDonald or Mark Spagnuolo?
