It looks like you got hungry & tried a little taste of the wood. Your supposed to turn it not eat it.
Good job Stu.
It must have been difficult to turn that. My turning experience is restricted to turning some handles and a nunchaku on a drill powered lathe.
To me it looks rather scary attempting to hand turn a piece with such a void
