Using a table saw as a….lathe?

What if you want to make a cylinder shaped wood piece like a dowel, but all you have is square wood? You could put some serious elbow grease into it, using knifes, planes or sanding paper and get a pretty decent result. Of course, it would be a simple task if you have a lathe, but what if the only machines you have is a table saw and a drill? John Heisz knows how to make this happen! Just watch this video and marvel about what can be accomplished if you think “out of the box”. However, remember that table saws are extremely dangerous machines, so be extremely careful when trying out this trick!
