Spent considerable time on this bowl, from dragging the logs home, cutting it down to bowl blank size, then a couple hours of turning (I’m fairly new at turning). I go to do one last touch up before putting it in the bag to dry…. then….BAM!!!.... I get a catch and the bowl goes flying. It took a few minutes to find the left over pieces as it had ricocheted off the ceiling then my grinder and who knows what else. At least it wasn’t my face (had a face shield on ) LOL
I’ve had a catch or two before but was able to save the bowl…. not this one, which really bummed me out as I really liked the grain and the red streaks….Not sure if they would have stayed red after drying.
I’m sure it was due to my technic…..live and learn I guess.Does it ever get easier to take a bowl getting destroyed as you get near the end of working it. I’ll say one thing for sure…. turning is very very addicting.
