Wood Turner


I saw this at the Redbud Festival in Browntown. The lathe was foot-powered and made by the craftsman.

This is my City Daily Photo Theme Picture: Creative Artisan.



Start the video to see the action — it's only 30 seconds long.

  1. I wish my Hubs could do woodworking like that. I would have him busy building me lots of things I want.

  6. The talent of someone like this is amazing. I would be hard-pressed to work the lathe, let alone create something beautiful as well.

  8. Buck, I took the video because I thought it was remarkable and I'd never be able to explain it adequately. My little old Coolpix does video as well as still pictures.
