The turner's cube and wittled "Ball Cage" are good examples of what improbable items can be made in wood.

If you want to see very complex turning then look up "Rose Engine", "ornamental wood turning" or "Holtzapffel Lathe". These mechanisms use gears to produce complex motions and help you turn spirals, elipses and other interesting shapes
