A great gallery link for you turners out there and anyone else who appreciates turned work. Sam Shakouri has to be one of the best turners out there.

Thanks Mike
That’s very inspiring—-It makes me feel inferior. I wouldn’t begin to know how to do some of that work.

Hey Kent. I don’t have a clue how he does it either, but I’m pretty sure he must have some pretty exotic machine set-ups in his workshop. I guess if you know what result you want it is just to start thinking and tinkering until you get it. I’ll bet you have done that a lot yourself.

Hi all
Sam is my brother in law , he certainly hasn’t got any exotic tooling or machines,actually he has the most simplest and cheapest Chinese tooling . It is the will and the dedication that make him produce what he produce . I am not in wood turning but I appreciate all hobbies . I am in steam trains modeling , my website is . All hobbiests are special breed of people and have creative minds an generally positive look at life and that makes them produce such wonderful items of all kinds . Good luck everyone .

I do not agree with Kent Shepherd by saying ” It make me feel inferior ”. I was not sure of the item he was talking about or who made that item, but inspiration was the key and what we needed to improve our skill and ideas.
Go for it, Kent, and dont give up.
