    Superglue to the rescue

    This piece of beech was badly spalted and the brown areas were really soft so I soaked them in thin superglue.
    9" tall, bowl is 3 1/2" dia at edge. Stem is just over 1/4" thick

    Beautiful piece Pete! Outstanding wood - glad you were able to save this! I do like the form - especially the flaired lip! Very nice work indeed!

    Pete, that is a cool form. I like the flared lip too. What would we do without superglue.

    Very pretty, Pete. How in the world did turners survive before super glue was invented?

    That's the stuff. Over here you can buy the thin stuff cheaply in pound shops, like your dime store. It soaks into soft wood and stiffens it up. Som,e people sue it on pens as well, rubbing it on as a sealer with a plastic bag or rubber gloves.
