    I wonder if anyone other than a wood turner would think that was half as funny as I did? Larry???

    If that doesn't prove we are nuts, nothing will.
    Good one. Funny.

    I tried that but kept breaking the lead...

    had to revert back to the old fashion method of using the crank pencil sharpener.

    I respectfully disagree with Frank. We turners do a lot nuttier things than that. Polishing it with beeswax was a bit over the top, though.

    Chuck...it's easy to do. Lighten your touch and make sure the tool is sharp. The crank pencil sharpener is still faster, though.

    It's Carl Orff, "Carmina Burana" I'm pretty sure. A bit over the top for the job, but they use it in car and beer commercials.
