That does happen when the video is reversed.  Love seeing one of the Watts' Tops in action. ;)

I like it. Apparently, even easier tricks combined with good showmanship makes for lots of applause. I like lots of applause. I need to learn showmanship.

Great videos.

I love big tops. When we were all at the park spinqueen had a five inch Watts. I was surprised it only weighed two pounds, and I think it's bass wood. I did not get a Texas Cowboy, but I think it was the tip I'm not use to. But for a solid five inch top it's light.

cecil,  That was a basswood Watts' Top.  It is my favorite turning wood however, my supply ran out.  Am looking for more.
