Made this bowl out a walnut crouch blank. It cracked so bad that I cut it out and added a segmented maple bottom to it. I could could not trash the walnut. The size is 3×7.5.

Thats a nice save would have been a shame to have lost the lot, beautiful colour in that walnut :)

That came out really well. I love the contrast between the 2 woods.

Increasingly I believe the second most important skill a woodworker has to develop (after the ability to cut straight) is the ability to turn an accident/mistake into an opportunity.

And a very nice save it was with that segmented bottom. That is the beauty of woodworking, you can always redesign with the original piece of wood if a problems occurs. With metal, it is usually scrap.That is a great looking bowl and for a customer, you planned it that way!!
