Hollow turned vessel. Cherry and Walnut The last picture shows the extent of the void which included some rot.
I filled the void with a mix of left over coffee grounds and epoxy. Added a Walnut ring. I cut a trough between the 2 woods and filled it with copper filings and CA glue. File the copper to size & sand to 600g. 2 coats Min Wax Teak Oil and 2 of paste wax.
My thanks to Druid, Snowbeast and wiki for their suggestions. Thanks fer looking’.

Well Mark, that’s a great save, and the final result is beautiful. I like the idea of the copper filings as an additional point of interest.
Well done.

How did you contain the grounds/ epoxy so it could set in the void? Great save, beautiful bowl!

Missed this one Mark, great finish and you made a great save. Like the addition of the top ring and the use of coffee grinds and epoxy. Very nice hollow form.
