Default Turning a Cube on a Lathe

Not sure this is applicable to us but it sure is interesting. I'm no lathe expert so before watching this I would have sworn it is impossible.

Give a man a fish and you'll feed him for a day. Teach him to make pens and he'll never fish again.

It is a lot easier to use a mill attachment on the lathe.
