Turned this his small 8” diameter walnut bowl with a mortise to mount on chuck. Everything was great until I removed from chuck and discovered that the center of base was so thin it flexed with little pressure. Photo 1 makes the slight depression on interior stand out. To save the bowl I turned a small disk of maple, glued it in the mortise after turning the shoulder square, and turned the bottom concave. in photo 5 upper right off the base rim you can see my second effort to destroy the bowl. Got a catch as it was being polished on a Beal buff. The result was a rough spot that wouldn’t buff away. Knot was stabilized with many applications of ca glue.

Nice bowl and nice recovery!
