If you want to be depressed check out this video on the Village Carpenters blog.

http://villagecarpenter.blogspot.com/2010/04/bow-lathe-and-fancy-footwork.html.

This guy is doing amazingly intricate turning work with only a very simple bow lathe, a skew chisel, and his right foot. You read that correctly, he uses his right foot to help control the skew chisel. There is no way that I am letting my wife watch this video. I would never get to buy a new tool again.

If you think about it, he has all four of his limbs involved, cause his left foot is holding the tailstock in place.

He should also give instructions on how to sharpen a chisel. Very Impressive, great skill set.
