Over the weekend, woodworking master QueticoChris went viralviral! Just over a week ago, he published this sped-up video of himself making a foot powered lathe completely of his own design, and now it has exploded in viewership over weekend, amassing over 600,000 hits

Chris starts off the video saying he chooses his woodworking projects based on what inspires him. After finding two old fashion wheels, and a few other high-quality building pieces from the past, he knew exactly what he was going to make. 

“It hit me like a bolt of lightning…. the Foot Powered Lathe.”

After completing the lathe, he shows the brand new woodworking device in action, making a beautiful wooden table leg.
