Making some bottle stoppers. I’m a new turner and got a catch. Was mad, it was my last cut. When I stopped the lathe I smiled. It looked pretty.

Never make the last cut. It’s always the next-to-last cut.

Where I come from, they call that a ‘design opportunity’.

Lots of things to do there!!!!!!!!! You can sand it out or you can bore a shallow pocket to insert a coin or a stone or a 30-30-shell or a 12 gauge shell. or you can dish it out and sand it. Turning give you a cnace to be creative at every stage of the project. Sometimes you do it on purpose. Sometimes you are forced to think of work around to make it come out looking good!!!!!!

That is a pretty good looking stopper coming out there!! I like the shape and the grain!!

As long as you know what you did to make that catch happen, is the biggest success in you work. Now polish that baby up and open up a bottle. Looks great..
