    way to go ned! i like the way you arranged the pic of the shavings, that layered, worm's eye view of shavings going on as far as the eye can see. (btw, you're holding it upside down....)

    which, the whatsit or the funnel?

    that was the 'pretty side' of the former bowl... the back side will only see the wall of the shop & vice versa.

    my lone artistic attempt for the evening... the shavings shot.

    And that right there is why I prefer a tenon instead of a recess for chucking a bowl. Especially on a small piece like that. A piece that size would only need about 1/8" to 3/16" of tenon to hold it securely. (Assuming sharp tools and gentle technique.)

    Yeah, I was halfway through carving out the center of what should have been the foot when i went 'oh heck' and had to cut the recess. Bill G's comment kept echoing through my head: compression vs expansion... you can easily split a bowl with expansion, but very hard to over compress with a typical chuck. Especially so with my little tommy bar version.
    Still It was a learning experience. I turned something, and that's what it was all about tonight.

    Like your subject line implies, you're not alone in learning that lesson.

    I really like the ceiling fan pull but agree it would look better with the other end up.

    Beautiful funnel Ned. Can't say as I have ever made one.

    Well, I'm sure neither Larry nor I have ever done that.

    Looks like it was going to be a nice piece.
