Mistake Bowl

Once upon a time in a shop far, far away – - – OH *&^%$ ! Yes we all do it, but my house was already too warm.

The first time I tried to use a lathe turning chuck. I mounted it on the outside instead of the inside. My small Pauduk bowl was almost done as it flew across the shop. So being a woodworker I had glue to to put Wenge on the top and bottom. This saved mistake is 6” x 4”.

-- ??? My mistakes heat the house. It's very warm in here. ???

That is a very nice bowl. I don’t see a flaw.

That is a stand-alone beautiful turning. Don’t tell anyone about the mistake. No one will ever know.
