Made this bowl between other woodworking projects. Made from tulip wood and a Iroko insert. It is 10” diameter and 1 1/4” tall with a over all thickness of 1/8”. I think the name speaks for itself Quite a few turners have made a hole or two I managed to rescue this piece

I would have never been able to tell that it had been an “Opps”. It looks great!

Your lucky only to get a hole. My second and third bowl blew up like a grenade!! I could only be so lucky!! Great looking bowl. It is funny how the mess ups are the best items. Thanks for sharing!

Rule number one of bowl turning – NEVER try to make the inside bigger than the outside.

Rule number two of bowl turning – if it won’t hold soup, it’s ART!!

Nice recovery.

Nice save. I did that ‘once’ and later sold the fixed plate to someone who like my great idea of mixing woods!

Great save. My guess is that every woodturner has done this or will at some point in time. It helps in honing your skill to make a perfectly fitting plug. Nice work.

Thanks all. I am sure this will not be my last Ooops but I do like a challenge saving them

Yes I turned a piece of wood fitted into chuck and turned to size of hole glued in. Then turned inside flush put the bowl in cole jaws to turn the reverse. Hope that answers you question

Well you give me hope as well as courage. I have a bowl that I took too deep, and it is still drying out. The bottom where the chuck holds on, is about as thin as a piece of paper. I decided to hold onto it, in the hopes that I could repair it, the same way as you have here.

Hopefully it will turn out as nice as yours.
