    And for my next trick...

    No spinney people were harmed in the making of this screw up. All safety gear was in place and wood chip a reclamation device in operation. Several layers of pride were sacrificed to protect whatever layers were left.
    I left it on the counter with a note for LOML "Look Hun...I finally cracked up"

    Well, it is a one of a kind piece. Nice form, but the finish looks like it leaves a bit to be desired.

    Glad you were out of the line of fire.

    Sanding and finish is not very good but other than that nice piece of art.

    Epoxy it to some plate glass, send it to Vaughn, and he could sell it at one of his shows!

    I think it best not to go with a burial but perhaps a cremation.

    Check out some back issues of the AAW magazine. There are people out there paying big money for "deconstructed turnings". Drill some holes and use stainless rods to hold the pieces in the configuration shown. You never know when you will come across someone with more money than common sense.

    A lil CA glue will fix that chip but that tear out is gonna be somethin else to get out.
    There are no mistakes in woodworking until you run out of wood.
