4 Legged Square Bowl

This is a beautiful piece of walnut and would have been excellent expect for some small cracks running through it. I've turned a few of this form before but they have always come out a little "chunky" looking. This is the best one formwise so far. It's 5" square and a little under 2" tall.

As I was turning it I realized that one of the legs was about to come loose from one of the cracks so I glued it up with epoxy which left a stain I couldn't completely sand out. I sprayed the piece with a sanding sealer before gluing but it still stained. Any tips on gluing walnut?

Looks good. Epoxy is pretty hard to control and hide. You might try CA glue next time, medium works well for what you are trying to do. It will leave a little line but shouldn't soak in too deep and leave a stain.

That's a great looking winged bowl, too bad about the crack.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.
