A few weeks ago I posted pictures of “The Flying Bowl”—an ash turning that blew apart. I was a little shaken and sad to see the project ruined.

But my motto is that I don’t make mistakes when I make sawdust, I just make prototypes.

So after a few weeks of contemplation, I decided to rethink the project. I squared off what was left of the rim and glued on a piece of walnut. It’s not the bowl it started out to be, but I’m pleased with the result.

I agree. Better than firewood.

Safe at first. good save. I hate to throw ruined projects away. mostly they set on the shelf to remind me not to do it again the same way. TH rim really sets the bowl off.

Nice save. I have my cracked bowl and exploded bowl shelf in my shop. I may do something with them one day or may use them for chew toys for my dog.

Great save and cool bowl. One of the things I like most about turning is the design opportunities a turner is presented with, both planned and unplanned. It doesn’t take much to make something out of a mistake. Just a little bit of imagination. You did good.
