Throwing a Lid Off the Hump

An easy in and out this morning...
I had posted a video a few weeks back showing how I'm currently making my lids by throwing off the hump, but I never got around to showing how the lids were trimmed up.
Here's a full clip showing the whole process...



The background music is, "I'm Beginning to See the Light" by Jay McShann. Love his magic fingers.

Oh you clever little bastard... I love that with the rooted cylinder on the wheelhead to trim off of. Perfect chuck. Perfect. I am so going to use that!

' I never saw rainbows in my whine, but now that your lips are bu-urning mine I'm beginning to seeeee the light'

hey joel, great vid... the production value is getting better and better. great tune too. i like that chuck you're using for trimming and it was a revelation when you ran the trimming tool over the edge of the lid and the edge of the chuck at the same time.
