Try gluing it back together. Sure is pretty though.

When it's rustic......it's rustic

was there a crack in it when you started to turn it
was it on a chuck
you still can save this piece
when they fly off the lathe and you cant find them that's when you cant save it

i see you are using Reese to hold the piece be car full when your expanded
your chuck you can cause more cracking

i pre faire to use a tennont or spigot for holding
fill all the cracks whit some Ca glue before you start

use some strong carpenters glue to join that piece back to gather

Glue it

I hate when that happens too!

Glue it back together then put a big hose clamp on the ends until the inside is finished.

Beauty Robert!

Teach that wood a lesson!

Bad wood.., bad!

p

...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

Beautiful thing about funky grain...you can't tell where the repair was made. Great job!

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

Wow, that worked out rather well. Looks awesome and the wood looks fantastic. Great work.

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

Robert,
turned out nice. I always try gluing them back together, what have you got to lose? I've had them come apart in 4 or 5 pieces and scatter. I was on my hands and knees tracking them in the wood shavings and sawdust. At that point it becomes a quest. Heck, if it were always easy, everybody would be doing it.

LOL, No, actually I'm jones'n to start another. I've just been busy with other projects the past month or so. Got a dust collector (and you know how that goes trying to get everything hooked up and in it's place), house painting, and I also picked up Malcolm Tibbetts book The Art of Segmented Wood Turning wich has been keeping me busy in my spare time (it's a great book BTW).

I've been here, just kind of sitting back and enjoying everyone else's work. Hopefully I can get back to the lathe here in a couple of weeks. It calls my name every time I go down to the shop.
