I was doing a bowl and got 5 coats of tung oil on it. I was setting it back up on the lathe, and I had it on reverse didnt realize it. the chuck spun right off, bouncing off the lathe bed and rolling across the floor ending up smacking the front of a bench grinder stand. I had many nicks and scrapes on an otherwise (most flawless finshed bowl I have produced to date) :( well I thought that I could sand out the scrapes and nicks and re-apply tung oil.
I cant get the color to match at all. I have to re-sand starting from 150 and go up. basically re-finishing it. :(
Live and learn. stupid useless reverse!
hope your piece works out for you.
What was the purpose of the bag? dust protection?
