From Log to Bowl

There's something mesmerizing about woodturning. I can watch people turn wood all day. Here's a series of short videos by Joe Fisher that shows the process of starting with a log and ending with a cherry bowl.
Joe is, among other things, one of the moderators at, riding herd over WoodNet's Woodturning Forum. He's also responsible for the beautiful cherry bowl in the photo, although it's not the one turned in the videos. That one was offered up for ritual sacrifice -- the value of which is known only to practitioners wearing strange hats and brandishing sharp tools.
