Thanks for sharing Bob.  Really amazing work, I would think it would be much more interesting doing this for an hour in the morning rather than a stair master.  Wonder if they ever switch legs to do the pumping.

He can really make that hook tool work for him.  The quality of the cuts without all of the sanding was special as well.

Looks like he used a tool similar to the McNaughton coring system blades.  The set of 4 bowls was very special.
