This is a small dish I made some years age which I thought may be of interest to anyone turning a piece of timber and finds a split growing before your eyes. dont throw it away lie I nearly did.
We had just bought some new appliance & the packaging was held together with these copper plated staples, so I used some to “stitch” the crack together.
My wife hashad it on a stand in her office since.
Timber is our NZ Christmas tree” the Pohutukawa (Metrosideros excelsa) this bit is quite worm eaten, it is a very heavy hard wood.
size is average 200mm (its about 10mm out of round)
