Norm Abram Turning Question

Thomas Skaggs, Foothills of Mount Level
>I have seen Norm Abram turn spindles on the New Yankee Workshop. He never looks comfortable doing it. I'm sure I've seen him cutting a cove or a bead but usually he is only shown cutting a flat with a spindle gouge. I sometimes wonder if somebody else actually does all the more difficult parts of his turnings?

I am a Norm fan and have met him 4 times...very nice fellow. But watching him turn is a lot like watching my wife program the VCR. ;-)
