    Tony, I have to admit, I'm laughing here

    Not at you, but at us "turners" I know I've done that..........a......."few" times.............

    Mine usually don't survive to take pics, I toss them HARD at the nearest concrete wall......

    You could try saving it, find a contrasting block of wood, and shape it to fit in the best you can to the funnel opening (sorry I could not resist! ) and then glue it up and have a go!

    Cheers!

    .......achieving the art of making the inside diameter larger than the outside diameter. You are the first ever to do something like this.

    Tony don't worry about it. That is why I built the depth gauge. I can go out now and show you 3 or 4 I have on the shelf just to remind me. Your funnel is prettier than my funnel. You just have to laugh and say on to the next.

    I think you left out a couple "harumphs", and a few "tsk chhhhhhh" sounds in there. I must say that is one of the nicest funnels I've seen in a while. You're good, man.

    Sorry, couldn't help but toss a little salt in the wound. Hate to see pics, but like everyone else, all I can say is it's happend to me, and I hope it doesn't happen to either of of ever again, but it probably will.

    Here's one solution I used on a walnut funnel I made...you can see the edge of the new quilted maple foot:

    And here's how I covered the patch on the inside:
