    Round 2 is currently under a great deal of pressure in the bench vise, will see if the bark interface is any stronger after it's had a few hours to think about it.

    Glad you didn't see it because it flew away and not into your eyes.

    I wonder if there is a way of knowing this before hand, something like tapping on the piece and hear the sound it makes in the same way we do it with clay pots
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Yes, even after a lifetime of enforcing the wearing of safety equipement it's good to have a reminder from time to time.

    Didn't feel a thing personally other than the pressure of the bang, the disturbing thing was that I did not have any indication that it was about to let go up 'till that point.

    We owe a big round of applause to the guy who first invented the face shield... probably has saved me more than one smack in the face.

    Chas, good looking piece, can't wait for the finished product. Glad no harm, no foul.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
