    Duck Dynasty show

    Anyone watch "Duck Dynasty"? It is about the Robertson clan that has made millions making duck calls. The show I watched last night on my DVR they were making a duck call to break the record on the largest duck call. They take the wood to a buddy that mounts it on a big yella lathe, but then proceeds to use a roughing gouge about the size of the ones I would use on a pen blank! It caught, it exploded, it came off of the lathe, it broke some things. Anyone else see this?? If not, watch it and be amazed.

    As stupid as most of those "reality" shows are, I wouldn't be surprised if they staged that "accident" for "dramatic effect"!

    No, I haven't watched the show. The promos were enough to steer me in a different direction.

    Yep, they have a lot of money. Due in part to the one son's initiative/salesmanship. I greatly enjoy watching it because it is proof that the american dream can still be realized by us commoners. I also realize it is somewhat of a spoof of their life. I liken it to a modern day Beverly Hillbillies.

    Jon, I saw it a couple of weeks ago. I missed most of the rest of the show, but I did catch the lathe explosion. I was thinking "Stupid is as stupid does." But I'm like you...I kinda get sucked into watching it for the Beverly Hillbilly moments.

    When I set up my woodshop, I pretty much stopped watching TV. Now that I'm living somewhere without a shop, the TV has seen quite a bit more use.

    its a good time to wax and polish your turnings when its on. Alot is staged for TV but it makes polishing and hand waxing etc.- more tolerable......LOL

    I saw the same show and watch it all the time. I am like Jonathan in that indeed the american dream is there. Jonathan I like the one where they put a travel trailer up on a platform for a duck blind.

    Bernie they used a JLG telehandler to get it up there.. Excited my son as that is who he works for. Said Safety group might not have approved of everything..
