    think i'll join Dan.:)

    I've been working on this for a benefit for my SIL. Well i was almost done when i thought i'd clean up a small ridge on the inside. Yea right, you know what happens when ya do that. So it looks like it's back to the drawing board.
    Dan i think i need to join ya if ya have anything left.

    Yeah its thats last " just one more cut to clean up" that will get you. I have had that happen more than once and I guess I needed to learn the lesson over and over to get what not to do. I know better than to go back to the thin areas after getting into a vessel deep but I still have done it and sometimes with very light cutting I have gotton away with it and others times it has cracked. I knew better but still tried to do it......now I just reach in with 60-80 if the opening is big enough and sand my way.
    If you have a scrapping cutter on, freshly sharpened, and a very very light touch to the exact area - you could get away with it (maybe) but, if any of those things are not right the risk increases way up........I think by now I have learned.......I think........LMAO...................
    Frustrating to think of how long you spend to get it to the point you do and have things go wrong....but I spend time when I cool down to analyze what happened and to think thru how I can prevent it again in the future....

    Then you have to learn advanced rules - Professional
    Then you disregard the rules - This takes you to the master level................

    I hate that last cut. Get's ya everytime. Is there enough wood there to put in a donut chuck and square the end off and glue a contrasting piece of wood on the bottom as Larry suggested. I have did that in a pinch and a lot of times those are the ones that sell first. Just a thought.

    Steve,
    That's a very nice funnel you done there, allthough I think I would taper the top a little more and flare the bottom slightly to make pouring through easier...

    I agree with Larry, you can clean up the bottom and then turn a bottom with a slight cone shape that would wedge into the bottom opening and then fix the bottom as a base or something... a nice contrasting wood would look great with the vase...

    That's too bad. I'm such a glutton for punishment that I have a tendency to put finish on those piece before they hit the fire just to see how pretty it might have been if I hadn't screwed it up.
