I turned this bowl today out of a piece of Maple and Curly Cherry. The bowl is about 3 1/2”x 4” tall. I turned a little too much and went right through the bottom of the bowl. So, instead of throwing it in the scrap pile I turned a piece of Marblewood that I had and fitted it into the bottom. I think it came out quite nice – I used a friction polish followed by buffing on the Beal Buffing System.

I’ve been working hard to take some worthwhile photos of my work, I think that I finally got it figured out – now to perfect it :)

I like the Marblewood save Bill. Been there once or twice, but easy to fix. Looks good, nice work.

My motto is that a good photo is a Lumberjock’s best helper. :-)

Charlie has already said it all, so congratulations on both the save and your photography.

Nice save. I’ve done a few bowls recently and been afraid of doing similar, so I was over cautious. Nice to see that it can be salvaged if it happens.

Clever solution on the bottom. It’s worth saving, nice shape and pretty grains on that lovely bowl.
