Re: It's impossible to cheat at woodworking

It depends on whether you see your woodworking as an art, a craft or just a functional pursuit. I watched a TV programme recently where a guy was turning bowls from log offcuts. He first used an axe to rough out the basic shape then used a foot-peddle lathe which was driven by a branch of a tree with a piece of rope attached between it and the lathe pulleys. His foot peddle was just a length of rough wood which bent and released the branch to give the spring to drive the lathe. His bowls were just beautiful - a real work of art. They could more easily have been made on an expensive lathe - but anybody can do that! He is a real artist and his work is appreciated for the way that it is made.
