ANOTHER LEARNING EXPERIENCE OF TURNING A BOWL OUT OF OSAGE ORANGE THAT WAS CRACKED AND HAD NUMEROUS FLAWS. I HAD TO FILL IN AN AREA ON THE RIM OF THE BOWL APPROXIMATELY 1/4” DEEP. IT WAS AN AREA THAT HAD DETERIATED AND WAS A KNOW TYPE FLAW. WHILE TURNING THE HUNK OF THE KNOW FELL OUT. AFTER REPAIRING THIS AND CONTINUING TO TURN I TUNED THROUGH APPROXIMATELY 1/2 OF THE BOTTOM OF THE BOWL, WITH A HOLE AND LIGHT SHOWING THROUGH APPROXIMATELY 50%. I WAS READY TO DISGARD THE PIEC EAN START OVER, HOWEVER, WITH HELP FROM JIM J.,AGAIN, I EPOXYED THE ENTIRE BOTTOM, FILLED IN WITH SOME SAW DUST AND COMPLETED THE PROJECT. LIGHT STILL SHOWS THORUGH HOWEVER IT IS WATER TIGHT. THE OSAGE ORANGE CAME FROM A NEIGHBORS TREE THAT HAD FALLEN DOWN SOME TIME AGO. IT TAKES CONFIDENCE AND EXPERIENCE IN ORDER TO SAVE A PROJECT LIKE THIS. THANKS TO EXPERIENCE FROM M LJ FRIEND JIM.
