Oops!

Yeah, "oops" is what I said:). I got this little guy a tad too thin on that bottom curve. I was really liking it too. I kept the hole at 7/16" and the walls less than 1/8". Just had a lapse of concentration and forgot where I was cutting for a second. I'd feel better if I had a pile of FBE in the yard but its hard to come by around here. Oh well, I have one really nice chunk that I'm going to try to turn into a large HF so maybe I got that "cut through" out of my system.

Sometimes the small ones are the hardest ones. I have plenty of pieces that got a little too thin and ended up in many small pieces. Best thing is to chuck up another pieces and give it another try.

This is just me but I'd put a different colored base on it and maybe a different color rim on top and finish it

Take a piece of walnut and turn a tapered foot, sort of like a foot on a fluted glass, for it leaving a small peg to fit in the hole. It will work fine. Don't ask how I know.

Nice funnel!
Everyone has one or they haven't tried to turn anything thin.

I have one

save it believe it or not you have the perfect funnel. I am not trying to be a smarty I lost a small lid for one of my finishes ( fell down the back side of my workbench ) so one of my tops that doesn't spin all that well makes the perfect lid due to it's shape.

Yes! Spray the inside with silver Krylon paint to make it reflective, and fit it to an Ikea LED light

Well y'all are full of great ideas. I was really just needing to whine a bit but now I have more items on my future project list. (Ive already made plenty of funnels). I appreciate all the suggestions but I think this remnant will best serve as a reminder to slow down, measure often, and slow down some more. Hopefully my next post will be of a successful piece.
