“The greatest obstacle to the woodturner's art is the lathe. As woodturners, we are too often trapped into thinking we cannot go beyond the symmetry  of the lathe-turned object. We must first think as artists and then determine what tools and techniques we will use to create our art.” 
— Robert Gray
