Rescued bowl

I hadn't turned a bowl in a while what with doing pens and stoppers and the like for the craft show circuit so I threw a piece of maple on the lathe. 1/2 way throughthe inside of the bowl and I got lazy for a second and had a catch that broke the foot right off in the chuck and sent the bowl across the shop. Glad I wasn't standing in the way as I had not put my faceshield back on after applying finish to the outside (had safety glasses on) . Managed to reverse chuck the bowl, turn a new foot, reverse it and finish the inside (no more catches but there was a little tearout the I didn't quite get all the way out). Decided since the bowl didn't want a foot to take it off. Several good lessons here for me: Stand out of the line of fire, wear a faceshield at all times when turning, and don't go so long without doing a bowl.

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

Nice save. The bowl looks fantastic too. Awesome work.

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

Great job on the recovery, and as nice as that bowl looks you really should do bowls more often!

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

Glidden, I agree. I had been doing quite a few of them earlier this year. I had so many stacked up on our entertainment center (after playing show and tell for the wife) that she started saying that I wouldn't be the old cat lady but rather "Bowl Boy". Some day they'd find me dead buried in a pile of bowls

LOL - your wife and mine would have plenty to talk about!

Nice bowl - there's no sign at all that there was a problem with it

Now all you have to do is fix the side of your wifes car that has a bowl sized dent in it. That looks great!!!!

No cars in allowed in my shop! Our garage is on the smaller side and even my Toyota Tacoma will barely fit through the door. We've been in our house for 13 years and there has never been a car in our garage.
