OH MY! Perhaps you should consider a spring pole lathe … at least the piece would stay as the tool shoots across the shop! I’ve lost so many neighbors that way … LOL!

Seriously … sorry for your loss!

Wow! I’m glad you’re in one piece and ok. Maybe you might think about getting a helmet.

All it needs now is a thought provoking title, an ‘on permanent loan from the so and so foundation’ sign and it’ll be worth a million bucks.

Shards! (A favorite swear word I picked up from a Sci-Fi novel – seems appropriate here.)

Looks like a good candidate for some contrasting epoxy filler or inlace.

Glad nobody was hurt.

I really like the natural finish! ;-)

- Lazyman

I really like the natural finish too. I would glue the pieces that you have, leave all the rough edges as they are and put it somewhere that your visitors will see. What a great conversation piece,
A LA NATURAL.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

This is why I stay away from lathe work.
