I'm no turner but that technique looks quite scary to me. It must generate a lot of vibration on the lathe. THe idea is great though, the use of urethane foam to hold the piece and make the sides of the box(jig) slanted so it can be reused is great.

I'm with Toni, "quite scary." However, beautiful result.
Thanks for showing.
First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
NOT a beginner's technique eh
Quite the lathe he has, and he has some serious skills too. It is often these guys that push the limits that make the really unique stuff, I applaud his ingenuity!

If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.
Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.
Very cool. The Steinert Maximo is one hoss of a lathe, so I doubt vibration was much of an issue. (Notice he's turning off the side of the lathe. That'd send most other lathes into a frenzy.) I also like the idea of using the foam as a chuck. I do think I'd want to be wearing a bit more face protection, though.

That is pretty cool but not sure i would try it. I am with Vaughn about the face shield.

very inventive..............not sure I would ever try it but still interesting to see
First you have to learn the rules - Beginner
Then you have to learn advanced rules - Professional
Then you disregard the rules - This takes you to the master level................
