    Wow this is cool! I'm also 15 right now I think the same age he was back then. I also have a YouTube channel and I'd love to do a cooperation video with you!

    i figured it was a joke when the vaseline on the glasses and then the laquer thinner on the cuts. as a former body tech we used alot of it and when you had a cut it came in contact with, it was everything but pleasant lmfao. its a funny video but always remember, people are stupid enough to try this.

    Reading this in November 2014, it took me until the balsamic vinegar to check the post date. Nice one chaps ????????

    The bra tip is really great, but unfortunately it didn´t reach europe till now. Everytime I use a bra while carpentering those dozy retarded ones are laughing at me. It may take a few more years, but don´t you say, he who laughs last laughs longest?

    Can you actually cut wood with cardboard?!??????!!?!?!?

    I used to watch your videos, then I came across this older one… made me unsubscribe immediately. Its nice to have fun, but after wasting 10 mins of my life with this non-sense (and some not safe), you went too far dude.

    Does the glue smell like vinegar?

    You're killing me Steve!

    All of my projects are falling apart when the glue failed – it's a sticky mess to clean them up. Note to self: Wood glue does not stick to sticky broken coke joints…

    I can't drill holes anymore – all of my drill bits are black, the shop stinks to high heaven, my cat is dead (from drinking the rancid, zinc-contaminated milk)

    I had a really dull blade and tried your trick, shook the volcanic rock box for 3 hours, 27 minutes and 14 seconds figuring longer was sharper – table saw blades are now completely round with nubs for teeth. As a plus I sold my Saw Stop saw and replaced it with a $110 model from Wal Mart since there is certainly no way to get hurt with my 'sharp' blades!

    I'm sick as a dog from blood poisoning from the lacquer thinner, doctors finally figured out what the contamination was when I caught fire trying to light a cigarette…

    I'm starting to think that I just don't have "what it takes" to be a woodworker! I followed your tips to the letter!  ;^)

    The milk/flour/vinegar glue is actually true—  I became a non believer in the rest when the cardboard saw was presented…. and lacker in your cuts is just plain cruel lol he could get a lawsuit for that one

    hey i have another good tip if you saw of one of your fingers or something just lick a lizard and it will grow back in seconds

    Lol. You better write it's for fools day. Kids are watching.

    Hi, EGPrime here, I have another great tip! If you lose an eye whilst not using adequate safety goggles, poke the other one out with a 'Phillips head' screwdriver, and scream for sonar vision, like bats!

    Another all time great tip is; when you hit your finger with a hammer, just turn the finger around and hit it again just as hard. You'll wack the pain right out because your hitting it from the opposite side….

    You said you cut the corners off of your walnut cylinder. How? Thanks

    This is a great idea. I live in an apartment and don't have room for large pieces of equipment such as a lathe. I can make this and store it under the bed. Thanks.

    Safer than a lathe!

    Just thought I could build a mount for a cordless drill have it turning might end up with a cleaner finish. happy days.

    Hi. think this is a terrific idea. Will be making one up myself.

    Why not include a hardware parts list in the video description?

    I love that jig, Thanks, Bob

  • Sam
    March 6, 2016

    This is a great looking jig, I'm definitely going to make one but I do have a question/suggestion about the design which is: Could you add a steel cord on a pulley that moves the router along with the turning motion you are already applying? Not that it looks too difficult to move both.

    Excellent video, loved the originality & also the way you glued three planks to make the raw blank for the table leg. The three holes concept took the cake. Look forward to learning lots more from your videos. Thanks.

  • Luke Faez (Spaghetti Man)

    I think of it as a reverse lathe. Stationary workpiece and moving cutter.

  • Kelly Craig
    March 6, 2016

    If you joined the holes you drilled, then added two floating pieces of ply that just fit inside the box and that had just one hole to hold the piece being worked and one hole for a bolt that went into the slots, you could make the jig infinitely adjustable AND you could do tapers.

    Once you have the ends positioned where you want them, bolts going through them (a single hole on each floating end) into the slots could be tightened by turning knobs.

    What if you have a short piece of wood about 24 inches long?

  • Charley Newhouse

    How do you keep the nuts on the lag end from unscrewing as you turn the threaded rod?

  • Ali Al Suwaidi

    Nice :)

    Perfect! exactly what I need. Thank you so much.

  • Matthew Prince

    I like the idea but why wouldn't you just get a variable speed motor with a small and large gear to increase torque? You could get one pretty cheap and it would free your hands from doing the work, yield better results and you could sand on it like a lathe.
