WOW, check your setting, is the lesson here!!!!! I bet the left hand was a bit sore for a while.....

I measured it once, and I cut it twice, and it's still too short......

I disagree.

I believe the lesson is: "turn the speed to its slowest setting before turning off the lathe, every time."

Now that is scary.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

That was a level 9 pucker factor for me .
Good thing he turned the machine on with his left hand.

so, i'd like to learn from this video. what exactly happened? several of you said speed was a factor and the video said high speed turning, but how is this a problem when it looked like it was pretty balanced? also, what was the deal with that column? it kinda looked like it had a hollow center.

Yeah, most all of those big columns you see are just built up of glued boards. Anything out of balance can blow up at high speeds, it may start out balanced...then....

If anything on the headstock, or tailstock, moved; this can be the result. Always double check your tension both ends before firing it up.

Especially applies if you leave a workpiece in the chuck overnight. Or, a few days. Temperature, and time; affects wood and steel tensions/locations.

to me it looks like it was at a slow speed, and it split open as he was speeding it up. You can see him turning a knob as you hear the machine whine more and more, then BAM! It could have been a bad glue up that caused it. But there are a lot of other factors like you guys are mentioning. too much tension, maybe overnight it had warped a little bit, it's hard to tell.
