This is my first blow out. Hopefully I will avoid this in the future. I was turning the foot on the bottom and it flew off.

Not a turner, yet, so I would like to see how you go about fixing this. As Thewoodman2000 said, it’s a cool piece of wood. Be a crime to waste it. Thanks for sharing.

On some of my blow outs, I sawed the bottom off and just made a round picture frame. Hate to waste good wood.

Contrary to popular belief, it IS possible to make the inside of a bowl larger than the outside; it’s just not recommended. Glue a contrasting piece of wood on the bottom and go again. ;)

Looks like you can salvage with some epoxy. Love the grain and the simple shape. Don’t despair….blowout happens to everyone!

lol can always smooth the inside edge and sting the blowout inside it for a wind chime.
