This was one I thought might look okay. Probably would have if I hadn’t of got a little heavy handed. Its maple and cherry and D-A. Upon dissection it was discovered I really wasn’t paying attention. Really classed up my scrap bin though. If you don’t fail every once in a while your just not trying.

Ok, you got a touch thin. It was an awesome design. Inspiration to do it successfully next time.

Oh Dear, I bet you said, “Gee, I wish that didn’t happen”.
And it would have been very spectacular, if only the inside didn’t get bigger than the outside. I really like the idea.
Been there, done that. Only proves we are human.
Thanks for showing.

put it on the bandsaw and slice that section out to make it like a window into the inside? Put a nativity scene in there and it’s a keeper. Oops too late, I just saw the last picture.

You sure had a winner there. Now you can make another one and use this one as a how it’s made display.

Yes that will look good in the scrap pile. We have all done this and continue to do so. I do like the way the woods worked with each other. The design was nice. Back to the lathe

soapmaker, I recommend putting it back together using Kintsukuroi method and turn it into a unique piece of art.

You can use tinted epoxy to achieve the Kintsukuroi look..

Wow that’s to bad ,it’s a very attractive turning. Perhaps you could glue a back to the good half and use it as a wall hanging?

Nice work in going for the paper thin walls. I know we all could post some pretty good “lessons”.

Really classed up my scrap bin though.

I hope so! A spectacular failing, I wish my “good” turnings looked like your failures.

Id take the good half and stick it to the wall, put something in it, and pretend that was the plan all along.

Beautiful vase and what a shame about the blowout. but you can always remake it. You need to talk to Ron Campbell and ask him about the Carter Hollow Roller, would solve the problem of that happening again.

If you don’t fail every once in a while your just not trying.

If you have ever watched the Red Green show you’ll be familiar with their phrase, ”If it ain’t broke, yur not tryin hard enough.”
