How I got my tag line

So I turned a couple of walnut bowls this morning. Well almost a couple. I usually leave a small foot on my bowls, but decided to turn a recessed bottom on one. Turned it into a nice funnel instead.

Send me that, I could use it on top of one of the trophys I'm making.

Seriously though, I would be figuring out something to make it into now that it's not a bowl anymore. Hmmmm, or is it?

A wise man once told me, "Relax and enjoy life, cause you'll never get out of here alive." RIP Dad

What a shame. That was a gorgeous looking bowl. love the grain and the colour. Sorry about your mishap.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

3rd law of woodworking. If you can't fix it, feature it.

Lovely grain, you could turn another bowl slightly larger and turn a Banksi nut for in between and use the "funnel" as a base for an elevated sweet bowl.

I've got a box-elder bowl I had the same problem with that I'm making a plug for right now. Use a lighter wood like maple for the plug, give it some nice contrast and character.

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.

Looks like a lid to me! :D

Like the lids they put on room service trays? Put it on that bowl and see what it looks like.

I say turn a shallow base with a 1" knob and fit it through the existing hole to make a cigar ashtray.
