Prior to turning the piece I filled all splits and cracks with dyed resin fiber glass then turned the piece. I always make the filler stand out I think it makes it look better than trying to hide it.

Beautiful piece. Who says a crack makes the wood unusable? It adds a very nice touch to this urn.

Yes, I use bondo and I mix it in a baggey, I can cut off the end and squeeze it out under control as though I were putting iceing on a cake.

I haven’t been into woodturning too much lately, but I can’t remember ever seeing a foot like that. It really enhances a very nice piece.
