I am trying to rotate a function around a variable axis to show my
students how the solid looks and am having problems with the axis of

Basic example:

RevolutionPlot3D[x^3, {x, 0, 2}, AxesLabel -> {x, z, y}]

However I want the function to rotate around an axis other than x ==
0, say, x == -1.  I have tried the RevolutionAxis command but it isn't
working.  Any help would be appreciated.
