unknown species of wood, inlace foot, shellac finish…
while turning, i misjudged, AGAIN, tha depth of my bowl and poked a gouge clean thru…
fortuitously, i had overmixed a batch of inlace a week before and with a bit of superglue and chutzpah, presto!!!
nasrudin’s folly…

Fantastic bowl. Great save. The inlace gives it more charector. Sounds like you need a depth gauge.haha

Keep it up.

Good job. I’ve turned several bowls into funnels. I never thought of this kind of save. I’ll remember this but, hopefully, I won’t have to use it.

thanks guys, yer words of encouragement are elixir for tha soul…

@ TopamaxSurvivor,
inlace is a plastic product mixed and used similar to bondo…
rather a bit on tha expensive side, until you get it right tha very first time…
then tha grin will be hard to erase…
you can get this stuff at many different suppliers, i just picked this one at random…

Thanks, It does look a bit spendy, but then saviing a spendy piece of wood may be well worth it ;-)

I have a nice cherry bowl that needs a uhhhm design correction and this looks like a great idea. Maybe I can try your design ummm, fabrication?.
