I posted this vase a few days ago.This is my fix,I had to use a screw chuck in the bottom,mounted back on lathe and parted off broken pieces and glued on a piece of walnut which allowed me to mount to a face plate and fix the bottom,screw chuck went all the way through so I had to glue in a patch.I built a steady rest to help keep the vase on the lathe this time.Thanks to everyone who encouraged me to fix it rather than the fire pit.

Excellent fix…..see…I knew it would turn out great in the end! : ) No one would ever know it was supposed to be any different then it is if you hadn’t shown us. Good work Bill!!
