    I dabble in all sorts of shit but have never tried woodturning. Shouldnt he have trimmed that thing a little more balanced with a saw or something first? Around the 6:00 I was cringing.

    I saw that a few years ago. That is insane.

    I remember making my first bowl. It was an 8in by 8in blank. My lathe was vibrating so much just from that thing I figured my teeth would fall out. :jj:

    There were rocks in the wood. The burl tree had grown around them. :jj:

    A piece that big would be just as difficult to cut as it would be to mount on the lathe and round. At one point I believe he cut something off while it's on the lathe.

    For some reason the video won't play for me on Youtube either, but I remember it. If memory serves he had his lathe bolted to the floor.
