Nice job Stumpy!

How times have changed. :)
Back in 2011 I posted a bowl I turned on the table saw and I about got ran off the board because of how dangerous everybody told me it was. lol

Anybody remember this?

Thinking outside the bowl,
Here is another 1 made by moving the jig over to the side of the blade.
I admit the the finial is funky, it was turned (lazily) on the drill press.

You never cease to amaze me, seriously. As for being vilified on Jock’s, let me say, I learned quickly that posting here is what I call, the arena. You described your experience, and I too, in promoting the CNC as a woodworking tool, circa 2014.
I’m glad to see you posting…..

Stumpy, well done on video, and 5 stars on your teaching methods-
I would really like to see “more” on that teaser of your kitchen remodel…
Best to you

Well done video! Looks like a great way to turn bowls without having to invest in a lathe!

Does it involve turning your table saw into a device that rotates a piece of wood in a rapid circular motion?

Have your say...
