About a year ago I was turning this piece of walnut, got to deep and snapped the tenon off the bottom of the bowl, it went flying, hit the floor and broke in half. I kept it thinking about a way to salvage it. One of the things I learned over this last year is how to remedy mistakes.
I glued it back together, used a biscuit joiner and added the biscuits. Giving it the appearance that’s its stitched. Using a longworth chuck I trued the bottom and glued on the maple. Wal-la a salvaged bowl. The finish isn’t as smooth as my other bowls but I didn’t want it to be perfect. It is 8.25” x 3”
