This started out going good when all of a sudden it went flying across the room. I was just trying to touch up the bottom and I didn’t have it attached very good and it came off the lathe. luckily it it broke on the joints and was able to glue it back together with little notice .

very nice work!

You turned me on then you let me go. Is that the song, or just your memory of the mishap?

Beautiful Bowl! You should do a blog on how you glue up the musical note. That would be cool to see.
