Cajunpen asked that I post a failure!
This is one of many, but I recovered it. I’d turned the bowl in wet cherry, hoping for distortion rather than splitting. I hurled in on the firewood pile and then had another look at it some months later. The symmetry of the splits was appealing so I made them into a feature by drilling the holes and lacing with a strip of leather cut from an old school satchel.
