There's a hole in that bowl!

A bit of drama found in this piece of box elder...
A knot with rotten innards...
Think I'll try the inLace stuff the way they they recommend...
I guess I could turn it out, or leave the bowl really thick...
Wish me luck!

If they are really deep, apply the inlace in stages. I've had it shrink and come loose from larger holes.

I've never been able to get the resin to set up right, so I use their "rock" and CA glue. Tape one side of the hole, fill with rock and then flood with glue. Remove tape and repeat from other side. Repeat ad needed to fully fill the hole. Remount and finish turning.

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

We'll see if this stuff works.

Here's how it looks so far...
One coat of WOP.
I'm gonna try the "bowl saw" on this...
I really hate turning all the inside wood into shavings.

As stated, this is my usual MO...
Cherry, walnut, and maple(?).

OK, this might be a little off the wall and don't be afraid to tell me if you think this is crazy or not. Since the hole seems to be a straight shot through the wood I might have tried drilling a hole big enough to clean up the crap wood and turn a dowel from the same wood, glue it up and drive it in. Just a thought, I don't turn bowls very much and haven't ran into this, YET.

I like the rocks.

Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsmen can hide his mistakes!

To each his own. Guess I'm just a wood purist.

Brilliant!! Though I may use a contrasting wood...
If'n I come across similar in the future, I'll certainly consider this.

Me, too!

Lotsa other possibilities out there...
I have a little baggie of wenge droppings and another of really light colored hackberry...

I'll find a place for those soon!
