Here's a few pictures of the blank I'm working on now. As you can see, it's got a bit of a crack and a void in it. I had a go filling this with 2 part epoxy-resin. Thing is, it was my first time using the stuff so I don't think I got it quite right, though I'm intending to add the finishing topcoat after cutting and sanding the inside. Problem is the flaw (feature?) could really cause problems later if I get any way ambitious. So I'm wondering: Is there a clever way of getting more wet epoxy into the crack/void area without ruining the finish on the outside of the bowl? It's remarkably messy stuff. I'm using epoxacast 690.

I would have used coffee grounds as a filler. Mix the grounds into the resin before mixing in the hardened. There is no way to put this on without putting it on first than sand or grind it out than the finish. Use a popsicle stick to apply to the crack. I always use gloves/nitrile type gloves.
