I think between the two of you with bad bowls can make one nice bowl if you put them together. Tough luck but hopefully one of you can make something out of it all.

Sad, this bowl had such promise at the beginning. I'm really glad you were wearing a face-shield Rich -- that would have left a nasty mark whether you had safety glasses or not.

For the tenon/spigot/foot, I'd go with Titebond -- it has superior shear & twist strength compared to CA. Don't know if it would make much difference for the side piece, the forces from the cutting edge won't be trying to twist it out of position.

I read III darkens as it sets, so maybe II is a better choice for this light wood -- but if you're going to turn that piece away eventually it won't matter.

Hope it works out well in the end, Rich ... good luck

As to taking one off the melon, even with a face shield, one more reason to position yourself out of the line of fire. I'm stealing this from someone on another forum (partly anyway); rest near, stand clear, let the wood come to the tool.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

I just started woodturning (2 days ago ) and have a lot of large green pecan logs. Looks like it loves to crack. I would appreciate any advice how to deal with it!
