This piece is turned from bloodwood. How ironic. I turned a small tenon to clamp onto so I could reverse chuck and do a really nice foot as the last step. I was using the wrong tool, in the wrong place, while standing in the wrong place, while not wearing my face shield. I had a nasty catch, the tenon snapped and threw the bowl spinning at 1300 rpm into my face. It hit me in the nose. I suffered a pretty nasty cut but was fortunate not to break my nose or have any serious injuries. What a minute, didn’t I just write a forum on always wearing a face shield while turning? Practice what you preach or suffer the consequences. Anyway, hence the name – Blood Brother. It was finished with Seal-A-Cell and wipe-on poly. Note to self; wear a face shield.
