    Thanks for posting

    The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.

    He sure has amazing tool control. The kind you get from turning thousands of similar pieces. His skew has a very long bevel on it, too. That thing must be spooky sharp. I was thinking about that when he started whittling the blank at the beginning of the video, while nonchalantly looking up and down the street at people passing by.

    Thanks for posting it, Dan.
