I posted in the forum section about these bowl I cracked and got some excellent info.
This is my first attempt at trying to turn to a less that one inch thickness. These are about 3/8 thick. The first cracked when I got a catch. The first pic shows the first crack. I tried to repair by drilling and inserting a dowel across the crack. That didn’t turn out to good as you can see. Later (not pictured) I got another catch and cracked it a couple more places. I super glued it in all the cracks and very carefully turned it the next day. I sorta saved it but you can see the several cracks.
The natural edge bowl just busted down the middle. It had an irregular joint but it fit back together fairly well. I super glued it back together also and carefully turned the next day. I was leary of the wings because of the cracks so I didn’t get all the glue line out.
My niece says all the bowl I mess up she wants so I tried these repairs to see if I could and I gave here the bowls.
The bowls are pecan that I dried in the microwave.
