As a wood turner never fear things going south there is always another day and piece of wood. The shape or form of these two hollow forms not really what I wanted. “Mistakes I made,” on both pieces not rough turned to uniform thickness, cutting through the side on one! Might add improper drying reason for those cracks & checks you see. Two other hollow forms turned to uniform thickness not show without those cracks & checks.
I chose coffee grounds to fill & highlight checking & cracks, and DAP wood filler (dries white) not seen in second HF. No attempt to fill checking & splitting in first HF.
To mask or include flaws in a turned piece always an option! If continued filling flaws would want to mask those flaws you see with paint! Talking about lot of time & energy to achieve something half ass presentable! Took over an hour of filling, gluing, & sanding using coffee grounds & Dap and still not ready for paint! Since not happy with shape of first or second HF think will put on the back burner for awhile.
