Good Morning, everyone! New to Lumberjocks, though I have been monitoring the woodturning forum for a short time, and this is my first post. I’m not exactly a woodturner, more of a woodworker, but I find I have been turning more and more, lately. I think that’s because it has been a little chilly around here and my shop is un-heated. I find if I stand in one place, at the lathe, and point a small heater at me, I can live with it.
Anyway, I just finished this piece and wondered how others felt about it. I knew the crack was there even before I cut the work piece to fit on my lathe. I just hoped it would hold together while I worked it, which it did. Now I’m wondering if I should fill the crack or leave it as is. I think I prefer keeping it as natural as possible, hence the natural edge on the top, but since I don’t do this everyday thought I would ask the experts. So, keep it or fill it?
If you need to see more photos, here are all the individual photos I took of this piece: https://picasaweb.google.com/madronawoodworks/CrackedBowl?authuser=0&authkey=Gv1sRgCMCn-u2i4dvyBg&feat=directlink
