In this episode of 360 with 360WoodWorking David Heim tells us about a 90-year-old woodturner who turns large, very large. His burls are hoisted up onto a custom-built lathe that can handle material as large as 48″ x 72″.
Join 360 Woodworking every Thursday for a lively discussion on everything from tools to techniques to wood selection (and more). Glen talks with various guests about all things woodworking and some things that are slightly off topic. But the conversation is always information packed and lots of fun.

An Apartment Dweller Turns BIG.
Scott Boley lives in New York City. In the basement of his apartment building, he has a couple of rooms that house his gigantic lathe and his collection of turnings, some completed and some waiting for finish. His introduction to woodworking came after a chance encounter with a woodworker who occupied the same rooms back in the 80s. Boley was recovering from surgery and needed a new hobby with tennis no longer on his activities list. It wasn’t long before Boley was turning and turning large.
