Sorry if this has been posted before – I just saw it on another board I frequent:

Is this your project? Not sure on the etiquette of posting someone else’s project….

No just sharing. Are you serious, we can’t share a video that’s interesting in a forum that pertains to members of that forum?

Thanks for the post. I never saw those being made before. He is certainly very good with that chisel.
Looks like a lot of practice needed. I don’t know how the piece didn’t fly off the lathe though.

Thomas – I don’t see any problem. Woodjitsu is clearly not claiming this work as his own and is only re-posting
an item that is of interest and has been left on the internet for all to see and share. Best Regards.

Youtube has a share button for a reason. I saw this video on another forum, really amazing.

Youtube is a ‘public forum’. So long as no misrepresentation is being made or profit from the work of another there isn’t a problem.

That was very unique. Thanks for posting. I wonder if the curls move with humidity changes.

I have seen this before, and wonder what kind of chuck he is using.
I have several tiny versions of this type of tree on Christmas items my relatives have sent to me from Germany.
They are on my to do list.
