    This video was posted on a scroll saw forum I monitor. The video is long and you may want to skip ahead a few times.
    As he started turning I couldn't help but envision the result of it coming off of the lathe. Talk about being in the line of fire! It would have run him over like a steam roller.

    There was a photo somewhere that showed a huge turning in Germany. A tractor hub was used as the headstock. I'm guessing the blank was several feet in diameter. Anyone here recall the photo or video?
    Edit- Saw a video of a lady turner, I believe in NC. Had a tractor hoist to life blanks. Anyone recall her name?
    Edit #2- I think this is the lady.

    Much more impressed with his chainsaw and carving skills vs turning.
