    Unhappy Help desperately needed NOT LMAO

    well this is the vase I'm making for LOML for her work desk. As you can see I got the square base ready to be turned into a domed shape so I can insert it into the bottom.

    Now in this pic (after you stop laughing) as you can see by my thumb I got a little over zealous with the forstner bit. My question is what advice can you give me to save this piece. I have more of the Bubinga as you can see in the first pic. > :-[ :'(

    Reverse chuck it with a jam chuck and and fit it with a plug.

    Yep, then burn the pictures of the hole, as it NEVER happened

    Just glue another piece of wood to the bottom and keep going. Maybe even some contrasting wood.

    Either do what has already been suggested, or put a couple pieces of curved glass in it and call it a telescope!

    Been there done that, almost. I didn't go ALL the way through.

    Chuck I would use a jam chuck, part off the bottom and glue a new piece in place then turn to form and finish. I am not going to tell you been there, done that.

    Can you counter bore another hole from the bottom with a larger forstner bit, then turn a plug to glue into it? That way the outside vase appearance wouldn't change, and you'd never see the plug in normal use. Also would use less of the Bubinga. Jim.
