Broke this bowl on accident and sutured it up with cooper wire using a hemostat. I did it this way because i already had 4 coats of Antique oil and 3 coats of semi gloss laquer spray on it. Kinda mad about it and didnt want to refinish the whole thing so i drilled finy holes up and down the crack on it. The crack went from the rim to almost center,- added a few drops of CA and held it for a bit and then wire sutured it and called it done. At first i saw this idea on another website and thought what a good idea on saving the project............My personal preference is natural colored bowls so i have to admit i dont really like it at all but thought i would share the story and comments about it.......it worked well - im just not into this kind of art i guess.
Finish Question - this wood has an open or porus grain to it and i think ill have to build up the finish alot more when i do more in the future. Anybody got thoughts on how to fill in the grain or level it up? or finishing ideas on this kind of wood ?
