Maybe I am too heavy handed with the soft woods? Everything was going great, I had the shape I liked, was very happy with the bead foot and rim. I started to hollow it out and it flipped off the lathe and bounced across the floor. I had a big pile of shavings there yesterday before I swept them all up. After lunch I am going to put it back on the... can't think of what you call it, the plate with the holes for screws, and turn off the foot and make another mortise and see if I can finish it. I saw more cracks in the wood (you can see it in the second image) so I am not too hopeful it's going to stay in one piece.
